Coate Water Lake

Coate Water Lake - Oil painting (18" x 14") by Benoit Philippe

I did this plein-air painting on Saturday in Coate Water Country Park in Swindon (England). I sat on a bench sheltered by trees, which became convenient when the rain fell shortly after I started... I was also glad to work with oil and not watercolour.

Here is the palette I used for this painting. All paints are by Winsor & Newton:
  • Titanium white (Griffin Alkyd paint)
  • Cadmium Lemon
  • Cadmium Yellow Deep
  • Cadmium Red
  • Alizarin Crimson
  • Cobalt Turquoise Light 
  • Cobalt Blue Hue (Griffin Alkyd)
  • French Ultramarine (Griffin Alkyd)
  • Phthalo Blue (Griffin Alkyd)
