Had a 9 hours night sleep behind me so was not really exhausted anymore but also not awake when I started this. But after the first coffee of the day ... I went into fifth gear! This is a fairly easy painting and most difficulties come from the sky blending and stroking the liner brush fluently. Now I do have a more or less fluent style (forehand, not backhand!) but my script liner really sucks. It split about a week ago and leaves me with agony most of the times. With a lot of patience, I did manage to get some result on the canvas, although less thinner then I would have liked. The sand was really fun to do. I created my own mix of liquid black (See the article about this!) and just enjoyed brushing in liquid, lavender and a touch of titanium white in it. Next to the sky, I am very pleased with the sand. Canvas used was a 12"x16" and this was painted in some two hours time, cleaning and a coffee included. I highly recommend this one to you all, please enjoy!
