Bogside Flats II

Bogside Flats II 8″x8″ oil on board

Another small painting of Irvine harbour area. This is the view across from the studios. I take photos of the view nearly every day to record the light change and the different weather patterns. Trying to use as much paint as possible in these small pieces to show the thick buttery strokes and letting me avoid detail.

  1. Love this series. Do you ever use a palette knife or squeegee? Might be fun to try versions much bigger, maybe 3′ sq?

    • Thanks for the comments, Liz. I do have some sort of plan to do these bigger but maybe not 3ft! I can only see them for now at 40, 50 cm sq. I’ll see how it develops though. I know what you mean about different mark making, it surprises you and I like that, so I will do more splashing about to be bolder (I hope) 🙂
