Evening Light, Tatlow’s Beach, Stanley.

The last period of light at the end of the day is a wonderful subject for artists. I particularly love the resulting silhouettes and striking contrasts that occur.

Often there are areas that lack detail and are quite two-dimensional.

Coming from a hard-edged art background, I find this type of subject rather appealing.

    I love this sort of background Richard I have tried to capture it many times with paint … a little frustrated with my efforts i must admit.

    It would be tricky to do with pencils I would be thinking 🙂

      I used Polychromos pencils on yellow ochre printmaking paper, Belinda. The colour of the support is all important as it strongly influences the colours you lay down over it.
