A Little Bit of Skye

A Little Bit of Skye

Oil on board  20 x 24'
Bridget Hunter 2012

Still trying out the new blue ( Windsor Blue, green shade ) and finding it makes some very intriguing mixes with Cadmium Red or Yellow Ochre or a warmer blue, or combinations of a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I work with a limited palette of 7 colours anyway so it's been an adventure into the unknown.
 This oil is based on a sketch done when I spent a week in Skye last year and, like this May, it rained !

A Greener Shade of Blue

Lights and Darks at Culzean

Oil on board   20 x 24"
Bridget Hunter 2012

I've painted the small pond at Culzean before but recently went sketching there again and used the sketch as a resource for this painting. It's very much based on a new colour I bought - Windsor Blue ( green shade) which is very strong and needs scouring powder to remove from the  hands !! It's always the same with a new colour though- the need to use it to prove you've not wasted your money.
