Today I wanted to put a wash of gouache on some pastelmat paper. I plan to work over it in pastel once it has dried, I figured it would need at least 24 hours to really toughen up.
I was really inspired over Xmas after visiting a surfers beach in Portugal. The sea was wild, but the light was bright and the colours vibrant. The surf was breath-taking to watch, the sea mist making rainbows in the sun.
If I can capture just a hint of the energy of the waves, I will be a happy painter!
