This is another image from my day at Botallack, Cornwall. There's no engine house - just a chimney... and some ruins. And rocks, and vegetation, and sky. Lots of sky. I like the way the chimney reaches into that glorious blue sky, and the way that the rocks define the right hand foreground.
I worked from a photograph, taking two afternoons to complete the painting (this is quite unusual for me - I like to finish paintings in one go. I also like to paint on site, but that wasn't possible). This is what the painting looked like at the end of yesterday afternoon:
Today, I moved some of yesterday's paint around - some of it was surprisingly stiff - and added some more, mainly to define the chimney's stonework and to refine the treatment of the foreground.
