Today I thought I'd go back to some acrylics, using some sheets of Japanese paper (Ho Sho paper) underpainted in gouache. As I thought there was some potetial in the Bass Rock sketch I did at Seacliff, I thought I should have a go at this. The result is shown below, and it's interesting to compare it against the sketch from yesterday. I think it is a bit more interesting - there's more colour and texture. However, the far horizon looks a bit like the Bass Rock is casting a shadow, so I think I may adjust this. I think is feels like a sunny picture - which of course it was. And it is true that the underpainting gives a good effect. However, I'm also going to try it in oils. I made a start today, but as I forgot the camera, I don't have an image yet.
