The Lonesome Road - stages 1 and 2
I'm planning on entering this for either the New English Art Club or The Royal Institute Of Oil Painters annual competitions at the Mall Galleries...or indeed both. Hopefully a moody painting of a lonesome petrol (gas) station somewhere unspecific, could be the USA could be anywhere. Pretty much a flat plain behind it, quite dark apart from the lights in the roof and the wan pool of light on the forecourt directly below. First "drawn" up with Ultramarine Violet and Liquin followed by a wash of Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Violet thinned with Liquin and turpentine. This will be my first painting on linen.
