Coastal Path, Isle of Man

Coastal Path, Isle of Man
Acrylic
By Jane Ward
This is one of the paintings I did over the weekend, Roughly sketched and blocked it in, then finished it yesterday back at home. Still trying out different techniques with the Daler Rowney Acrylics. It's great having a go with a different medium, certainly more challenging and I did nearly gave up up! I started again with a colour complementary wash, you can see touches of red showing through the green in the foreground. I also tried rubbing some colour into the sea with my fingertips. This was the pastel artist coming through! I'm going to try some different glazes next.

Great painting I know that urge to dip fingers in paint I just go for it.
