I started a painting of Staithes last week, and I had the idea of painting in a different style, using minimal colours and making it slightly abstracted. Unfortunately it didn't work. I started it at my Tuesday class, and by the end of the two hours I had produced something which wasn't that much different to my own style, and certainly wasn't abstract in any way.
My original idea was to use Burnt Sienna, Phthalo Blue (green shade) and Raw Sienna, plus white. You can see that Cadmium Red crept in and then Cobalt blue -I am so annoyed with myself. I am going to start it again and see if I can do better.
