Painting is now more complex but the colours are seriously out of balance.

We paid a visit to the Etches collection, a museum in Kimmeridge, Dorset, a couple of weeks ago.  The Etches museum is based on a fossil collection built up by amateur palaeontologist, Steve Etches.  Most of his collecting was done in Kimmeridge Bay where the Upper Jurassic Kimmeridge Clay outcrops.  I was very impressed by the Museum, both inside and outside.

I need to let this canvas dry and then add a dash of retouch varnish to liven it up.

This is one of the most difficult paintings that I’ve undertaken.  Trying to do by hand, grading and blending that would normally be carried out by airbrushing.
