New painting - 'Crane'

'Crane'  40x30cms  oil on canvas
My 'demonstration' painting from the Polruan course. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they are a beginning....I had to wait a few days for the paint to settle down - to avoid it sliding off- before I could have a proper look on the wall..

It's done: love the paint, colour and the space. There is both a flat-space and a hierarchy of receding space. The pink shape establishes 'foreground'. The small purple marks at the top of the canvas, and the layers of paint tucked behind each other, together (accidentally) establish 'distance'. It says Polruan to me.
