Lymeregis Cobb oil painting on canvas

Here’s today’s painting well underway. I decided to make an oil painting of a detail from the large oil pastel that I recently shared on this blog. I’ve ¬†been really missing the sea as I’ve mentioned and it really helps evoke special places like this if I explore them again through my painting. The camber on the stone pavement that forms part of the surface of this iconic structure fascinated me. I can feel it still as I paint it. The sense of unease and exposure was unforgettable. I’ve really been enjoying working in oils again recently. The way the brush fights back is addictive.
