Two More Landscapes

Shark Rock (work in progress)

I realised I had no confidence in the painting I'd begun at the Club a while ago, so when I got back there today, I began to paint another new one over it. I think I'm going to be a lot happier with this and can make use of some of the orange of the previous painting.

Sawrey Landscape (work in progress)

I also made a start on this new one. It's a continuation of the new series of landscape as strata that's begun to interest me. I'm not sure where I'm going with it and am tempted to describe it as an experiment. However, my old tutor, Bill V, used to say that a true experiment would require a control subject to be really valid, so instead, I'll call it what he thought such adventures should be called - flying by the seat of my pants.

Your colours seem to be getting brighter in the last few paintings you've shown. Like Shark Rock

That's the intention, Kev. To me it's a natural progression from tonality to colour exploration.
