"Autumn at Pendeen"
I have now returned to the painting having left it overnight.
I have always found it a good practice to walk away either for an hour or even perhaps a day before returning to it. This provides me with a fresh perspective with fresh eyes. This is the point where i often notice errors or areas that need development that I had not noticed previously.
So here I have added more definition to the cliffs and also to the sea. The cliffs and coastline at this time of year are a mixture of greys and greens which give it a slightly cool appearance. Regarding the sea, i have now moved to the next stage where I am trying to create the impression of water movement both between the rock formations and also as a wave approaches the coast.
To create this i have added Pthalo Green, Prussian Blue and a small amount of Lamp Black.
You may notice that I have also made some small changes to the rocks in the foreground. These still need a lot of work before i will be happy with them. I also still have to add in the tin mines and the village in the distance but this will be one of the last things that I will add before completion.
I now have to leave it again to dry before I can add more detail.
