brancaster staithe in oilsLate autumn afternoon at a favourite place on the North Norfolk coast - Brancaster Staithe. I faced straight into the the sun to do this. Sun was so strong I had to shield my eyes with one hand whilst painting with the other. 

The second photograph shows how I continued back in the studio with oils, and then a few days later, when the oil paint had dried a bit, I finished off with additions with oil pastels. Oil pastels will work fine over oil paint.

For the stains on the shadow side of the house I worked in some black and then smudged it with a rag dipped in turpentine.

Painted on primed plywood. 12"x10"
