On The Cliff


This was an experiment with textures. I wanted to paint a subject where I could practice using different textures - hence the cliff.  I used burnt sienna, burnt umber and sepia ink for the cliff and dribbled granulation medium in different areas to get texture. I also did some spattering. For the sky and distant trees I used indigo and indian yellow.I was quite satisfied with the cliff but feel the sky could have been a little more muted.

  1. You've created a very nice effect in this one Jean. I disagree about the sky. I think it's good as it is. Maybe the distant trees could have been less blue (more green/grey) but that's just me being nit-picky. Nice work.

  3. Simplicity at it's best Jean, a lovely painting that I recognised as being your style of painting when I saw it come up on my blog list today. Keep up the great work Jean.

  4. I like the sky as it is, it is glowing! Nice texture on the cliffs, does the granulation medium work with acrylics?

    1. That's a good question Padmaja. I don't know if it will work with acrylics.
