Winter walkies

The winter walkies I have been experiencing haven't been quite as idyllic as this. Dark, dreary, soaking wet and blowing a gale have been more the order of the day this week but still a girl can dream.... It has made me very thankful for my waterproofs.

Ironically, in a way, water has been the essential element in painting these two pieces with very wet washes, glazing and minimal pigment. I have used a triad of Daniel Smith's sodalite, cobalt blue deep and yellow ochre light again. I love, love, love the granulations they produce and it has been good to work on a slightly larger scale again.

Both paintings are available in my Folksy store Seaside Studios UK.

Lisa these colors really create wonderful textures. I adore the way you captured the light places in the painting with yellow ochre. So beautiful friend. Hugs!

Hi Debbie, thank you. The pigments are a joy to use I like that I can't completely control them.

Hi Rhonda, the rain is still coming and going here. I'm very glad I have such good waterproofs :o) I am hoping the migraines that have plagued you have settled down. I think the changing air pressure this time of year has a part to play.

Thank you Judy and Chris - I think the colour mixing chart has been very much worth the investment of time. I know I will be refering back to it again.
