I have become obsessed with painting for the last couple of days. This one is of the North Landing at Flamborough, my village in East Yorkshire.
It is based on an old painting (probably 1800's) I saw on the web. It took me just two days to do it. It is 7X12 inches and hasn't reproduced nearly as well as it looks in my original. I was so excited because it came out so well as I painted it, but then the reproductions don't show nearly enough detail clearly. I had to photograph it to see if it would come out any better. The first one is the photograph, the second is the scan. Disappointing to see here but my original I am quite pleased with. I think the one I photographed does a better job at reproduction.
It is so much fun to paint a picture, (this is in water colors) and see it finished when after thirty or forty years I thought I couldn't draw and paint and never tried. It makes me wish I had started many years before and maybe taken some lessons.
