A sunset

A painting over another painting on panel that did not work, was the basis for this painting. It was one of those that sits there, not quite finished or one has gone off the idea that inspired in the first place. Why waste the panel? So I just gave the surface a quick sanding, a wipe down with a bit of  white spirit, the artists kind and left it to dry outside.

When it came to the painting process,  I added a minute coating of medium all over the surface and I painted into that. This is the result, a sunset with figures and a beautiful blue green sea.
