The seascape commission is underway! Before Christmas, I painted the sky in a blended graduation of predominantly colbalt blue and established the basic layout for the sea, beach and shoreline with the rocks suggesting a focal point. Although the early stages look very basic, it is surprising how influential they are. Even though the scene can be altered at any stage, these areas establish the composition and, personally, I rarely stray that far from these initial parameters. Casually sketched-in rocks become permenant features that guide the rest of the piece.
