Mixed media painting ‘Coast of Stonehaven, Scotland’

Hello

Here is my new painting ‘Coast of Stonehaven, Scotland’

Scottish Seascape

I painted this based on the photograph I took when I visited Stonehaven a few weeks ago.  Stonehaven is a lovely seaside town in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Here are some photos I took..

Dunnottar Castle was amazing!

After I had done the rough underdrawing, I used drawing inks by Winsor&Newton to start painting. I found they are great for painting the sea and the sky!

Next I used Conte pastel to paint the cliffs and the land

Used watercolours and inks to add more details and contrast to the picture

I wanted to keep it rather abstract, so I did not paint too much details…and here is the finished piece !
