Skye Drive - variations using different media and tools

In an attempt to get back 'into painting' I created these are small studies based on one of my photos from the Isle of Skye. In the first two I experimented with different palettes and applied the paint with a knife, creating sharp and blurred edges and dragging the paint across the paper, building up some interesting texture.  The last variation was done with inks, charcoal, and some watered down acrylic. I always find it interesting how the paints or media, tools and surface (in all 3 cases heavy archival bristol board paper) can really affect the final work, and its mood.
