Waipu Cove revisited

Sometimes, When a painting is not working , I wipe out the bits I don't like (oh, the joy of oils)  and put it aside for another time. Painting is often just problem solving. I often don't know the answer but I like to think about it, research or ask someone their thoughts. This has sat untouched for months and , in my effforts to shake off the painting cobwebs , I have been revisiting old, unfinished paintings to see if a fresh mind can solve the issues.

This one was just such a painting. My problem was how to introduce the stream into the painting ...my first effort was a wiper, but I am happy with what I have done today.

 I might still fiddle with the beach, but I thought it was a good start.

ps. we are now in winter. If I was on a beach it would be dressed in 4 layers of clothing and possibly rubbing alcohol!


  1. Now where would you be rubbing the alcohol?

    1. Not sure! Have yet to get to that situation! Thinking of swapping it for drinking alcohol, perhaps a sherry!lol!


Sorry for the hoops you have to jump through to post a comment, but I am being assaulted by spammers. I would love to hear from you, so please persist! Thanks, jennie
