Steelworker" painting. I had used kitchen roll for lifting off mistakes, but not as part of the 'creation' process. I decided then that I wanted to do more by way of experimenting with 'lifting off' in a constructive way and I eventually tackled the foggy scene in "Boat on Bala Lake". This latest painting, "Hillside Cottage", has been done solely as a means of trying to paint hills whose tops are bathed in low cloud. It's not my finest painting and the cloud effect could be much better, but it was an interesting task nonetheless. I'd be very happy to hear from anyone as to how you tackle cloud over hilltops.
