Day thirty – Friday May 18 – 2018. Starting at 1420
1 hour 30 min
30cm x 30cm
When I was heading down-hill last Friday after having finished painting number 29, I got some new ideas for painting number 30. Ideas seemingly emerges during these walks. I was happy with that painting (29) but I felt it was a bit over-controlled. I thought that I should paint in a bit looser style, and I wanted to add some oil-gel in order to glaze thin layers a bit easier. These glazes could be done if I painted on a panel pre-painted with the sunlit mud-colour of the ground in the tarn.
I think the plan worked out quite well, and I also added som sharp ovals of light from the blue sky reflected in the waves.
