I painted croft houses on a beach to the right with vertical lines as aerials on a mound of sand and sea coming into the beach with a wash of drips and tranluscent colours on the left.
I introduced texture with collage of painted paper on the landscape and tissue paper for contrast on the wash then skeletal leaves for transparent pattern and to finish, gold leaf to shine through on the sandy hillside on the right.
I used splashes and drips highlighted with silver glitter paint.
Playing around with techniques and styles is exciting and fun to experiment with and I learn much about colour, tone, line and pattern. I think to explore in this way is very rewarding and it is a skill that takes on imagination and feelings for the landscape. It is fun along the way and the finished painting is always an amazing end to the process.
I would like to experiment in this way and develop more ideas and expand on this learning process.
