I’d intended to finish off the elephant and the sunrise paintings but hit a problem. Although they’re touch dry, when new paint is applied to the layer underneath an undesirable mixing and bleeding occurs. They’ll just need longer, and it’s really worth waiting to improve them.
Accordingly today’s post is now of something I did sometime back. It’s a very rough copy of an early Sisley snow scene of a river and its banks with clouds lit by the rising sun. Just as well I have kept a few of the earlier efforts, however poor they were. It’s like saving Kit-Kats for a picnic: useful even if not exciting.
