rain wind waves dreich



I came across and experiment I did months ago with texture paste, just a very beginning of a painting.

So decided to work on it using inks and then a bit of coloured pencil. It's a view I know well and have painted in all weathers, times of day and tides so it left me free just to experiment from memories. I moved the rocky reef offshore to the right to make a better composition ....... well, if Constable can move churches in a view I can move rocks

The offcuts piece I showed was made from the sides I cropped from this.

I wanted to keep it to a very muted palette.

A rainy day with the waves coming over the harbour wall - what the Scots call dreich. A really descriptive word for that kind of day.

Dreich: A combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. At least 4 of the above adjectives must apply before the weather is truly dreich. and they did apply on the day I was remembering

Acrylic inks, a little coloured pencil on Khadi paper (which I don't like) with underlying texture paste. I think I mixed sand with the texture paste.

There are things I would like to change but with the texture paste it would mean getting the sandpaper out.

or crop? cut out some of the overworking? I think maybe not when I see them together.



what do you think?

I think it is a bit more than dreich!. I get the impression of a howlin' Banshee o'. a Gale. The sea seems to be getting into a right stooshie!. Any way it seems to work.

I love it! It really captures the rainy wet miserableness of bad weather
