In the studio I've been working on a big painting recently. Oil on canvas. Haven't worked in oils for a year. The subject is based on this sketch I did of Loch Torridon, looking east.
As we've been up in these parts again this week, I wanted to do some extra colour studies. So I went back to my sketching place and did a couple of sketches in pastel. First I focused on the long view. I was struck with how colourful the water looked. But I think now I was exaggerating this a bit.
Composition is so interesting, isn't it?
