Flood Plain - finished

My first completed painting of 2016 - employing Mars colours (synthetic iron oxides) - the Orange, Red, Yellow, and Violet Deep.

There's also a bit of Yellow Lake, Scarlet Lake,  Pthalo Green, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, plus a little Cremnitz White, and Titanium White.  Oil on Ampersand board, 11" by 16",  Ampersand boards haven't been available in this country for long - they're high archival quality surfaces, resistant to warping, and suitable for oil and acrylic, or even for watercolour.

I was unconvinced that they'd suit me at first, but having tried just the one, and only with oil paint so far, I'm very keen to try more in oil and acrylic.

If interested in buying this one - £150 will secure it, unframed.
