Northern Island 1 - A Work in Progress

I didn't have a lot of time to work on a painting today as had to go out and run a lot of errands for last minute things I had forgotten about and needed before Christmas.

I simply refuse to be in stores on Christmas Eve. I did that once in my teens and vowed never to do it again.

I picked this piece that I had started a few years ago (see post on 14 June 2013) and started by putting in the sky, using a mix of French ultramarine blue with a tiny amount of burnt sienna. I was careful to have the small seagull on the left side of the island in an area that was fairly light in colour.

I will post this painting at a later date as more work on it is completed.
