Dawn Reqqa Point
Painted this morning at dawn, Req'qa Point is just below our apartment. I have been waiting to paint this close to the cliff edge for months, far too dangerous if there is any wind at all! It was painted at great speed with a palette knife, using just 4 colours, Cyan, French Ultramarine, Burnt Sienna, Naples yellow and Titanium white. I painted it over an old still life workshop demonstration of a bowl of oranges, which I had covered with a thin layer of B Sienna, traces of the old painting form part of the new! Amazing how many times this works out so well! I am posting the plein air scene below, I hope!
