Coastline Gigha


helen's painting for january blog


Title: Coastline Gigha



Inspiration: A photograph I took this year



Plan: No planning in particular



Chosen Medium and Why: It is a small acrylic painting, just 25 cm square. Acrylics are useful because you can keep going back to the piece and add more paint.



Painting Experience: I enjoyed doing this painting- but was surprised at how long it took to complete- I kept going back and changing the colours in the sky and sea until I was happy with the balance of colours. I have since painted two other versions of this view – but this one is my favourite.
