Sunshine, Clouds and Sea…

Maroubra Cliffs (Watercolour)

Maroubra Cliffs (Watercolour)

I decided to ignore my half finished puppy picture today and jump into something completely different, with the aim of trying to recover some of the spontaneity and fun of painting.

I’ve always been fascinated (almost obsessed) with skies and clouds and have spent many hours trying to capture them in photographs and paint. I thought it would be therapeutic to paint a sky today, something fairly simple overall, with some sea and cliffs underneath – an exercise manipulating paint, and also in leaving it alone (ha, never!). This is the first wash of sky and sea, which is promising even though it came out a bit lighter than expected.
