Portland Colour Study

I loved Portland. I have never seen a prettier Autumn and the colours were too much fun to paint!

I love painting with gouache

I have taken the advice I received in CTN and I am creating more colour references, and getting off the computer is an amazing thing! After completing some paintings at the beach earlier this year, it made a huge impact on how I treat colour and atmosphere, the only thing is I can not do this every weekend. One solution, I could quit my job and become a beach bum, But instead i came back to reality &  I can complete one of these gouache studies per night.
I hope to stretch some canvas's soon and get the oils out, all in good time.
