Competition Answer


I’d asked a question about this painting as my first “Win a Print” competition – here it is below.

What Colour?

I often like to use a single colour as an under-painting on a canvas or piece of board as a base.  The painting below is one of my earlier pieces of St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall. The question is:

What specific colour did I use for the under-painting on this picture  of St Michael’s Mount?

In this case the colour was Alizarin Crimson, although I would have also accepted red. There are some clues in the painting, for example in the top left you can see the red from the under-painting where I have deliberately left it showing through and there are hints of red too in the foreground.  Thanks very much to everyone who entered and better luck next time.
