'The Yellow Bouys'
This gouache was a series of works i did that week. Sunshine and 'happy paintings' are really not my thing! I'm more of a what you see is what you get person; i don't like to 'prop' my paintings. Dark and rainey days are more my style, we live on an small Island that is surrounded with sea..which in turn brings rain, and lots of it!
Here is a true example. The dark sky and damp conditions. However, it's advantage, especially as an artist in that it brings out the true values of colours - everything is neutral and balanced - no shadows or strong sunlight. Thats why the sea and sky appears luminous and clear. The bouys and the green sea were vivid against the hazy dark sky.
