River Avon in Indian yellow

River Avon in Indian yellow
Oil on canvas 70 X 80cm

The first stage of the painting I applied the paint as quick as I could to capture fast brush strokes, the next stage was to finish the painting and not lose these strokes. In this painting I used a new colour, Indian yellow straight form the tube, it is a fantastic colour.
