Humberston Beach Oils on Ampersand board 8 x 8 inches
A sunny day at the Fitties.
Ampersand boards are challenging.
This is my opinion of course, others may differ.
I have found that completing a strong underpainting, leaving it
to dry and returning again later with a fresh mind suits me best.
Initially, the smooth surface was so frustrating.
I found my oils sliding all over the place.
In fact, I put this painting away for several months.
This week I tried again and found the surface was easier.
I pushed the oils around loosely and aimed for a relaxed impression.
Finished...I shall leave it alone now.
