"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Roosting Cormorant Print Finished

With the addition of a  purple/brown and then a slightly darker tone of the same colour onto the birds and foreground branches, the composition becomes clearer.

another dark starts to pull it all together. Just one more to go:

Roosting Cormorants
190mm x 169mm

This print was made using just white, yellow ochre and cadmium red (mixed to make the orange) and purple made from a mix of cadmium red and ultramarine blue.
