Large seascape in oils.....5'x4'


Phwoar, what a whopper. No, it's not an actress and bishop joke, just me enthusing in a bawdy british manner on the size of this painting with a cheap double entendre! (Got the Devil in me tonight- might have something to do with the impending 'birthday of note' coming up- that, or I'm just a rude mare really!) I definitely became a dirty mare today, as I had more paint on myself than the canvas. A walking greyscale, indeed. Next time I get into that state I shall roll around on paper and get two pictures for the price of one. I could pass myself off as a collograph maybe?
For reference I again turned to the bottomless archives of our Mems' photo stock! This was going to be more true to the photo, but the minute paint hit canvas, the sheer size of the piece gave rise to flourish and added drama. I still have a bit to do on it, but just had to post.... impatient as ever, heh?!
Toying with the idea of naming this "Portrait of a British Summer!"

Jimmy is such a pretty cat - I'm sorry you're missing him.
