January day, Three Cliffs Bay


Finished today… at least I think it’s finished. Someone said a painting is never finished, it’s simply abandoned. Knowing when to stop – or to abandon the painting – is something of a challenge for me. I do tend to overwork.

Anyway, this is an oil painting, 16×12 inches, on Winsor & Newton canvas board. I painted it from a few charcoal sketches made on a very cold day in January, 2019, and from memory. I was lucky that the rain held off long enough. I include the primary sketch below.

  1. Nice painting, the scale of the people to the cliffs is very dramatic.
