Demo- North Main Street, Cork 5

And now, on to oils.

G
oing straight to the brightest
brights- thick white impasto
(warmed with just a touch of
cad. yellow), pastel-like pinks
and purples and a sky of
Cerulean blue - Yes, Cerulean
blue, not the warm grey you
saw in the photo. Why? - A
dark grey sky would certainly
have been dramatic, but I
wanted more colour overall,
and the light on buildings
seemed strong enough to
stand on their own without the
need for the extreme contrast
of a dark grey sky.
