Lanzerote sunset study

I have been practicing with watercolours in recent days and using a 1 inch flat brush, in an effort to be as loose as possible with washes.  It is quite difficult to add detail with this size brush,  so it limits any detail one might be tempted to add. The study is a beach sunset on Lanzerote, where one half of the sky was blue and the other half a golden yellow. Watercolour on Bockingford 200 lbs paper  11x15 ins.

Lambs 2

Lambs 2, oil impasto and texture on linen panel. I would say this painting is slightly surreal in the choice of colours. It is based on a previous work and I wanted to push the boundaries with texture and colour. 8x10x0.4 ins
