I started out splashing around the blue in different dilutions - is is a lovely colour - and I added some Ultramarine. It led me towards doing a seascape - was looking at the sketch I did near Ardaneaskan.
This pic is a out of focus and it's a bit of a mess. The light was a bit dim and I didn't want to switch on electric lights. So I stopped at this point. For review (or discarding) the next time.
I didn't want to waste the day, and doing this painting had made me think of the Applecross hills, so I looked out another sketch from a while ago and made a start to another study.
This was a promising start. I was back to my usual palette of Ultramarine and Carmine with some Burnt Orange added. So I carried on adding colour but trying not to lose the relaxed watery-ness and looseness of the marks.
Next time I'm in the studio - Friday - I am determined to have another go at the pictures I started in Lochcarron - the oils. It would be good to finish these if I can.
