A view of Tynemouth Priory from along the coast. I painted this from a photo I had previously taken but wasn't happy with the quality of the photo. I love the composition so decided to paint it instead of doing a re-shoot.
As usual, here are the progress paintings. I used different shades of paint in this painting, choosing Cerulean Blue Hue for the bright blue sky. I always have trouble with my greens, so I used Sap Green and Olive Green instead of mixing yellow and blue. Yellow Ochre and Burnt Umber were used for the stonework and some of the grasses and Payne's Grey was used to get some depth in the shadows.
Slightly paler as they were taken on a different camera.
I'd love to know what you think. As usual, giclee prints are available to purchase.
My Fine Art website will be coming soon!
