Whitstable- late Autumn sky

 This painting is based on an epic sky from late autumn 2020. Off the back of some plain air work I was doing at the time, I developed a real desire to expand on photos I'd taken. Here, taking a standard format shot of a sky over Sheppey and expanding it out into more of a panoramic. I'm using the mixer brushes in photoshop quite heavily here, this is a delightful way to work when you get the settings just right. I think even though it's digital, my mark making still has some umph to it. Large image painted at 600x600mm

To be printed in Gicle' paper ideally.
