This small oil painting was done on Sandsend beach at the beginning of November 2015. Working quickly and expressively with a palette knife I wanted to capture the rain storm before it disappeared over the horizon.
The oil paints are a high quality pigment and I always use Premium Wide depth 10oz Stretched Cotton Canvas. The painting is varnished with a high quality lustre oil paint varnish that will help protect the painting from dust, grease and UV damage. I use a greener alternative to traditional turpentine and white spirit.
