Newlyn Docks at Christmas

Newlyn Docks or Newlyn Harbour to be exact is currently a good source of inspiration. I love the Cornish starck black and white coloured boats. Painting like this is however what I call hard line painting . and is very hard work because I am working to sketches and photos. Instead of making it up as it goes along. A day into this painting I realizes there was much hard line work in front of me. I wanted to finish it but was also not doing what I do best which is to let the work bubble up from the unconscious. In a way hard line paintings are easier as you dont have the hard labour of constant creativity. Still I like it.
