  • Studio with props. Day 3.

When painting larger works I like to prepare a study drawing first. Drawings on this scale help with decision making.The composition and size of the finished work is made much easier with the study to refer too. The back ground wash is coloured gesso applied with a 2inch brush. I used water colour for the sand and pebbles where a bit of controlled wet on wet helped with the texture of wet sand.
