Highland cattle at Blackmount.

Today I have started a new painting. The red colour will warm the painting up and keep my drawing visible when I begin to add colour. I  have to wait now till it is properly dry but that won’t take long as it thinly painted using distilled terps.

This was an opportunity too good to miss – The historic Earnslaw of Queenstown and the Arrowtown Miners band together on the steamer warf.It will be a challenge. I have added warmth to the sky and highlights on the mountains and worked on the foreground rocks and water. The Remarkables were too close so I have gone over them with a blue wash to put them more in the distance.
