Ingleton Quarry oil on canvas

Here’s my current Ingleton waterfall oil painting with Monday’s reworking. I’m bringing in some more green tones as in the sketch I’m using that I’ve recently shared on this blog. I’m also mixing mid-grey tones for the band of ochre rocks on the ledge. I’m still working quite vigorously, but have to be careful not to lose it. It’s so easy to in the later stages of a painting. You’re always thinking about this and how to approach the next stage. It’s a kind of dialogue that goes on constantly in the background of your days. I’m always trying to work my time to get back to the easel in good light, and a¬†calm open frame of mind so that the marks can flow. Really enjoying my new brush that I bought in Cambridge on a recent visit. It has a real spring to it. I take very special care of new brushes to try to keep that quality as long as possible. I photographed this on the easel so you can get a sense of scale. I’ll keep you updated as to progress!
