Painting of Llansteffan by moonlight


I have said in recent posts I wished to do a few more nocturnal and late scenes. This is the first painting, Llansteffan by moonlight. I also decided to use up some colours I don't ordinarily include. I have drawfuls of oil paints which are rarely used such as viridian, cadmium red, and vermillion. So I thought I would use up a good quantity of viridian and cadmium red in this ( any two complimentary colours can be the basis for different shades of grey!).

I did it on a good quality deep edge box canvas for a change.
