SAILING©1

In the series Sail s and Harbors a new impasto oil,
which recently found a new home
in Helmond, the Netherlands.


The Skye boat song. The Corries

David Holcombe:
"The subject and the technique all create a sense of movement.
It evokes the lapping waves of the sea.
The spots of red make the blue sing out."


I used a lot of texture in this painting (impasto) Hover over the image to zoom in.
Using: tissue paper (for soft texture in sky) modeling paste, and imprints of under carpet (anti slip).

Since an oil impasto would take up to a year to dry, I used an expensive modeling paste (for oils) texturing the canvas first using lots of techniques taught at OLGarts Studio.
Then I just painted this oil with big rough bristles (dry brushing technique) and lots of different palette knives.
