Hunstanton, But Better.


I've been asked to paint a picture of Hunstanton, incorperating both the cliffs and the funfair in the same picture! For those in the know you need 360 degree vision for that. So I've worked out a plan and as you see I've put in the cliffs and the sea and sky.
I added an extra layer of gesso to the canvas to help the picture stay bright. So far I've used cerulean blue and cobalt blue, and burnt sienna and caminiun yellow and alizarin crimson for the cliffs.The instructions were "happy, bright Hunstanton" which is how I think of Hunstanton anyway, except when it rains.
