Day 18: a seaside Scottish town

Plockton study, 18x24cm, oil on canvas

Not a great day in the studio today. I blame the sun. It was a very overcast day out, and my studio lighting isn’t good enough to compensate. Perhaps it’s time to look into some proper lighting to get me through the Scottish winter.

I was hoping to work on several pieces today, but it wasn’t to be. Instead I moved on to ground preparation, since that doesn’t require good light. I picked up some plaster of paris over the weekend, so I played around with that. I mixed it with pva, which makes a nice modeling paste, and spread it on to a couple canvases. I like working on canvases that have a bit of character, and I’m running out of old paintings to paint over, so these should be fun to paint on. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
