South of Marsden

Having got on a bit of a roll recently, drawing and painting, I decided to try a studio piece based on a plein air oil sketch that I'd done earlier in the year. After my first pass at this I posted it on Wet Canvas as a 'work in progress' and I received some good feedback in terms of how it might be improved. After incorporating these I am starting to feel that it is moving towards a finish, so here it is. As with all these works, I like to sit back for a while before deciding that it is finished. I always welcome any criticism or suggestion about pieces that I post.

Looking good Mick! I like how you made the clearer seperation of light and dark on the focal point.

That does look nice Mick. I thought it was a watercolour at first until I saw the strength of colour and brush work in it. Well done!

Peter Ward said...

That looks rather good my man!

Well done Mick. I have to agree, it is almost a w/c but the strength of colour was definitely the deciding factor. Nice.

Dan - Thanks. Just a few adjustments to make and it's about finished.

Caroline - I like the idea that you thought it looked a little like a w/c. Maybe there is a little subtlety in there somewhere. Thanks a lot.
