The Lonely Night


This is the second painting that I have done of this location on Hove seafront near where I live, the older one shown below. This is another Tonalist painting that is an accompanying one to the previous, a gallery owner told me many years ago to think in pairs as a collector might be tempted to buy both when they see them together. Debating whether to show some of these to an art gallery a few streets away in Hove and overcome my disdain for UK galleries....

I tried a different colour for the underpainting on this one with the violet showing through and giving the whole painting a colder cast than normal. At some point I will try other colours like green but I have acommission to get on with now so that will have to wait.

Oil on linen 20" x 16".

There is a step-by-step progress through this painting including the colours I used in previous posts on this blog.
