This is another in my series of Tonalist paintings of the Brighton and Hove seafront where I live, although the subject really is the mood of the painting, the location is secondary. I quite liked the warmer colours in the last one in this series so I have resolved to do another one, a sunset, a subject I tend to avoid as they can be so corny.
The first stage is the tonal underpainting for which I used a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin and applied with a small bristle brush and a rag.
The second stage is the first colour pass on the sky. The colours I used were: Ultramarine Violet. Manganese Blue Hue, Permanent Orange, Yellow Lake Deep, Lemon Yellow and Zinc White.
