Painting Practice

I have been experimenting with a new painting technique which I am finding very interesting. I’m using acrylics on coloured stock (Dalor mount paper as it happens) and building up colour into the highlights. The idea is to keep some of the background colour showing.

The first attempts were my old favourite, birds and animals, which came together very well indeed.

Then I experimented with the first landscape I have tried in 30 years! It’s the beach at our honeymoon resort in Menorca.
