Linhay on the marsh.
Linhay on the marsh, painted on 250lb Bockingford paper, 700 x 440mm. For my black and white paintings I use my own prepared Bideford Black paint from a local pigment seam and have painted on of my favourite scenes from the Braunton Marsh. Sadly the marsh is under ecological danger from encroaching salt water due to a breached tidal bank. Hopefully this will be repaired before irreparable damage occurs. Al
Above are the earlier stages with the use of masking fluid to keep areas clear of the layers of paint prior to finishing. The photograph of me working is by Adrian Beasley, check out his landscape photography online. Below is an earlier painting of this Linhay.
