The first in a series of 20 paintings! This is a landscape showing a place I have visited. In my previous blog I published images showing the layers, mainly for texture I have used - well today I could not wait any longer so painted this one. It shows a costal cliff-top view of a place I have visited. It is painted on MDF board and I may choose to frame it in a simple but soft coloured wooden frame.

Next I want to add imagery such as tree branches collages into various space or other implied textures before working with mixed media colour on top!

This is the first stage of my experiment with hand tinting the self portrait I have made! After researching the process and experimenting with tints I have added the first layer of colour to the skin area. Hand coloured photographs were made from the earliest days of photography until around the 1950s . I was quite taken by the way this technique brings an image to life but at the same time gives a surreal atmosphere to the images treated.
