A Boat Study

This is the second image of using a limited palette.

Dungeness Relic II

Oil on canvas   10" x 12"
The other aspect of this new approach to my work is that I am working on a bright Cadmium Red ground.
So loud I need sunglasses on before I start! Not all new images are completed this way, but in this single regard I am having so much fun. Some aspects of the red are left to show through and add further harmony linking the structure of the composition.
