The Esk in autumn

This painting was worked from a photograph I took almost thirty years ago.  I feel that I have taken a retrograde step with this painting, it's tight and not the way I like to paint these days.  I'm not sure why it went the way it did, but I'm not happy with it.

The Esk river, acrylic, 14 x 18 inch

I prepped up a load of canvasses this afternoon with tissue paper, clear gesso, and molding paste, ready to do some very loose paintings.  I am out tomorrow afternoon, but hopefully I will have time in the morning to paint the next layer on some of them, using.acrylic inks.
