I have a very busy start with exhibitions from January 1st so with all commitments met for these, my time now is without any pressure so I can splash around as much as I like without a thought of making a painting.
Many times this type of play results in a fresh understated painting that may never have happened with over planning and hours of painting. I think this little riverscape fits that scenario perfectly. Using a limited palette of three colours: Indigo, Bloodstone Genuine and Raw Sienna and no more than 2 hours painting start to finish.
I avoid riverscapes and landscapes, I am yet to find my style in capturing beautiful scenes where I think I have added something of me, my head tells me it is just that I don't do enough but my heart still avoids them. Maybe this will be my 2016 challenge.
