Boscastle Sunset Painting

Like many painters, I have more art books than I can read. So today I bought another one. I recently found some art notes, taken from a borrowed book, written many years ago, and fortunately I’d noted down the name and the author. A quick look online, and the book is mine! ‘Creative Landscape Painting’ by Edward Betts. It’s fabulous – even better than I remembered. Not a ‘how to’ book – an ideas book, to lead you, gently, out of your comfort zone.


Favourite quote from it for today:
‘Say what you have to say in the picture, then get out.
There is no need to chatter on after you have made your point.’
(Edward Betts)

So, think I’ve made my point in this painting. It’s the finished version of the one shown in the last post. Quietly pleased with it. Hope you like it too.

    • Yes, I can see that – and to music as well, I guess. For me, there’s a temptation to ‘tidy up ‘ too much, and before long, you’ve got a suburban garden instead of wild moorland.
