Going Larger

Bamburgh Dawn - Oil on Canvas Board 20" x 16"

Heading for the holiday season with the inevitable change in diet to high fat, cholesterol, salt, additives, protein, chocolate, wine, whisky and grandchildren's leftovers. The title of this post is not meant to reflect the annual binge but a shift to try and incorporate some of what I had been learning into a larger piece.

Sheila, my wife, has a love for a photograph that I took on one of our many trips to the Northumberland coast. The photograph is of the sun rising near Bamburgh Castle and the challenge I set myself was to try to produce some of the feeling of the photograph in paint. The result is the picture above.
