Rember this? Maritime Blues III WIP – Update 2

7 Aug

Think back… way back to the spring when I first posted two WIPS of poured paintings of mussel shells.  I completed one and let the other, well rest.  Somehow, once I get to about the first third of a painting  I seem to set it  aside  and then finish an earlier piece.  this time is no exception.  With Maritime Blues II recently back from the framer, I decided it was time to finish this piece.  What I love about this painting is I can pick it up at any time, work for a few hours and them come back to it.  I have a goal to complete at least two shells pre day until I can call it finished!

 

I am loving the colours and textures – feeling quite adventurous with all the mauves and bits of pink.    This photo is showing the work darker than it really is – I will shoot the next update in better light!

    I love the colours in the finished shells – looks like a tidal pool glowing in warm sunset light.
