All at Sea

All at Sea

 

All at sea is basically about how I was feeling when painting this image. I couldn't quite get my palette right, and I was putting things down on the paper which didn't make sense. I paint intuitively and it was if that intuition had gone away for the weekend!

In the end the painting started to form and I was able to take cues from the painting to pull it into this finished piece.

All at Sea is not about the sea but about turbulence.
