River Towy and Merlin's Hill


This painting shows the River Towy and Merlins Hill looking from opposite Tan yr Rhallt Farm. The painting is sold.

I generally use French Ultramarine in my palette of colours for the sky. I add Titanium White occasionally a trace of  Cadmium Yellow and sometimes Alizarin Crimson. I will use Cerulean Blue as well or instead on rare occasions. This is one time I did use it. If I use one blue in the painting I use the same blue for mixing all my palette. This painting had a ground of Burnt Sienna and turpentine rubbed all over it with a cloth to start.
