Lemoine's Park Beach 10" x 12" o/p
This painting was painted on a Masonite panel that had been prepared with three coats of gesso and a final coat of a pinkish orange colour applied to the surface.
The palette for this painting was cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, alizarin, Cad yellow med., Cadmium lemon and white.
The medium that I used was a odourless mineral solvent . The first coat of paint and the drawing layout was put on with a fairly runny dark colour. Subsequent layers were mixed with the available oil that came with the colours in the tubes (notice the 'impasto") As the colours and details became harder to apply, solvent was added to the mixture, to help them flow and stick to the previous layer.
Another summer fun panting...
