Under Greying Skies

This is the disappointingly ‘flat’ 5×7 inch painting I wasn’t happy with the other day… I still find it all a bit flat, but what the hell – when the weather is a muted, moody grey in a reference pic with no dramatic highlights and shadows it’s hard to know what to do for the best?

I mean, I live in the windy North of Scotland where the skies (and the seas) are more often lilac grey than deep blue, so I suppose I’m going to have to learn to paint landscapes in soft, dull, muted shades as well as strong, bright saturated colours?

Looking at it again this morning it’s probably not as completely disastrous as I’d first thought, so I figured I’d just share it anyway… 🙂
