Seaside Storm Clouds and Seagulls Contemporary Impressionism Heidi Malott

"Seaside Storm Clouds and Seagulls"
oil on panel

Sometimes when nothing seems to go right in the studio I come down to two choices.  Either paint through it or put the brush down and walk away.  Last week I had a lot on my plate and must have brought it with me to the easel.  Because nothing seemed to flow.  I guess I tried both choices.  Three scraped paintings later I cleaned up and shut the studio door behind me.

After a few days and a few paintings later I picked up the 3 panels and decided one may be salvageable.   The other two will be painted over.  Today's painting had some features that I liked.  The muted tones and the brushstrokes were not overworked yet.  So this is what I came up with.  It is fresh, clean and has a nice mood to it.  I have quite a little pile of misfits that I leaf through and every once in a while I can save one, but most of these do get painted over.
