Across the lake from the dunes

Across the lake from the dunes, oil on card, 10 x 13.2 cm

Painted very quickly in Lagoa: there is a play off between speed and accuracy, freshness and finish. Work too fast and you lose finish and accuracy; work too slow and the picture becomes tired.

I'm going to work on some fast pieces, each to take a maximum of twenty minutes. I'll keep the best only. This might be the ideal wat to work in the UK where the weather changes so often.
