Sentinel - stage 1

After recovering from Illuxcon and the lack of sales I am getting on with something different that has been been bubbling away in the background for while and that was rekindled when looking at the work of Julie Bell who was exhibiting at Illuxcon. This is just a trial and is only the first stage, it may need more variety of colour for instance but I will paint in the lone Scots Pine when I return to the studio on Saturday. It is then a question of painting in the clouds which will be soft and nebulous and sorting out the foreground textures etc.
This stage was "drawn" in with some battered bristle brushes using a mix of Alizarin Crimson, Transparent Maroon and Raw Umber thinned with Liquin and turpentine. The sky was put in with a rag using the same mix.
