This is a landscape that I enjoyed doing and that flowed nice and easy and I did in record time because it just worked.
I use water based oil paints for my landscapes. The turps and linseed oil in oil paints give me a horrible headache and stank out anywhere I worked (and i work by a window in the back room). I’d moved to acrylics for a while which was ok but i really like the buttery soft texture of oils. So when they started selling water based oils at the art shops, it was like coming home again. MMMMMM. OILS.
I had only two blues for a while which was ok but I went and got the remainder of the colours available; I’ve used about 4 different blues in this painting. Blue is SUCH a beautiful colour and I’ve never really appreciated it that much before.
