A change of view today, looking landward. Green on the pallet for a second day. Prussian blue sulking in the tube.

Green Sky? Too much? Colour ‘appeared’ when mixing today and I thought, why not? Left the suggestion of gable ends too.

Keeping it quiet and simple today, feels like that kind of day. I do like a boat shape. Not sure if I should give her a name or leave her anonymous.

Crops from three paintings I’ve been working on this weekend. Have enjoyed colour creeping in after recent work becoming almost monochrome. Just going with it. Wonder what this week will bring? Colour or no colour, that is the question.
