View at Bol

View at Bol, oil on linen, 80 x 100 cm,, 2015.
Below is a recently completed commission. The painting depicts vineyards in the foreground and in the distance the sea and sky at sunset. The place is called Bol and is in Croatia near Brac.
There is also a brief video showing the paintings process from start to finish. Initially turps diluted oil paint was sketchily layed in. The sea was then built up gradually with increasingly medium rich glazes. The sky and vineyards both had a layer of straight from the tube oil pint followed by a glaze or two and some finishing using a fairly generic 5.1.1 ( turps.stand oil.damar) medium.
