Lymeregis Cobb with waves crashing recent reworking, oil painting on canvas.

I shared the more recent reworking of this painting on my last blog post. I painted the waves mostly and when I stood back noticed there was what looked like a tiny figure hidden in the water. This was not painted consciously but if he is there then I accept him. It happened a bit like the drawing that I made in the summer called ‘Medea’s heart’. The little heart in the middle of the drawing appeared on it’s own, I didn’t deliberately make the marks. Here’s an image of that so you can see what I mean. My painting seems to take on a life of it’s own sometimes and become something ‘other’.
