Glenrock lagoon colour study
About the artwork:
This painting is a small colour study of Glenrock lagoon done on site at the edge of the lagoon. The tide was low enough that I could take my easel right down to the water. The oyster shells made crackling sounds as I walked on the muddy bank to set up. I used a palette knife to keep my colours clean. I want to let the paint be paint. I looked at the big colour relationships. I am interested in abstracting what I see forms and colours.
