A warm breeze on a winter's day - WIP part1


After the horrible start to the year that my family have had I've decided to start again.... So Happy New Year everyone! Thank you all for your kind wishes for my Dad, you cheered us up no end.

Today has been a much better beginning. A new painting started, with what I hope to be an uplifting feel of peaceful, warm light.

One of my aims with this painting is to widen my palette choice. I'm trying out some new mixes using indanthrene with naphthol crimson, touches of vivid red orange and cadmium lemon as well as my usual azure blue and buff titanium. These hot colours feel a bit brave but a welcome feature on the palette whilst it's so grey outside.

Thank you Maggie. I promise not to leave the next post so long in the making.

So glad things are looking better - and this painting is lovely, soft and does have a little spice to it from the warms :) Hope the rest of your year is very creative and filled with good days and even better nights!

Hi, thank you so much. It has been really warm and sunny and we've been lucky enough to have lovely golden light here this week. Best wishes.
