A study of evening clouds.

A study of evening clouds using a limited palette, oil on board. The simplicity of the scene appealed to me in this quick study, using a palette knife, titanium white, ultramarine blue, touch of cad lemon and touch of ivory black to darken the green.

Landscape study.

A landscape study by the sea in County Waterford, trying to get my greens right. I kept it simple and used just a few colours using a palette knife. Oil on board.

A tired girl

I have been trying Arches oil paper. It's great IMO, no gesso needed and its archival. There is a bit of resistance to the paint at first, due to some absorbency I guess, but after that the paint just glides on. So far happy with my new discovery. The painting below is oil on Arches oil paper, 11x7 ins using a muted palette, a brush and then palette knife  impasto in areas.
