Landscape

Landscape in Acrylic

Recently I have started this new painting. This is a work in progress where  I am trying to be more expressive - but proving difficult as I am a painter of detail but, hopefully as time goes on working on it I will find my hand loosening up that bit more.

I love painting landscapes, seascapes and flowers and, thought it would be lovely to experiment a little by being slightly different with my approach however, it is not as easy as I thought it would be to be different in my style of painting. But sometimes it is fun experimenting and trying something new.  I started by painting the sand of a beach but, I am not completely happy with it then, moved on to painting the sky using the Amsterdam acrylic colours; turquoise blue  no.522 and sky blue light no.551 with titanium white no.105 and a little Naples yellow deep no.223 - some of which is mixed in with a little gel medium glossy to add a little bit of texture. I dripped the acrylic paint on from the top of the canvas then went over it with a palette knife creating textures and lovely smooth and sharp shapes. On the beach itself I seem to have created an interesting horizontal line so will try and work with that within the painting itself - just not entirely sure what to do with it. I would like to create expressive flowers in the foreground to add depth to my painting and texture too.

Feeling very inspired by the artist Amanda Hoskin. An example of her work is shown below, just indicates how much of an expressive feeling she has created in her foreground of flowers. which is what I would like to achieve but, not entirely sure that I will. Keep watching for the finished painting to be uploaded.
