Continuing experimentation, I decided to paint the same scene with different types of oil paint. Rosedale is one of my favourites. From the top of the moor, you can look into the valley and its farmhouses, and see the old kilns on the left (east side), and the old railway water tower on the right.

Rosedale II (now exhibited in Coast Gallery) was painted with Michael Harding’s handmade oils (Aliz Crimson, ultramarine blue, yellow lake and t white) + Winsor&Newton artist oils (permanent rose and diox purple).

Rosedale III was painted with Sennelier Rive Gauche oils (primary blue, red and yellow, and t white).
With both, black was used only in the last stage for finishing lines.
