|My value sketch|
|Masked lines of foam under rocks at right. Painted blue sky first wet-in-wet with cobalt and phthalo. blue. Sand and rocks started w/w with quin. burnt orange, quin. pink and cobalt blue.|
|Clouds done w/w with mix of aureolin, quin. pink and cobalt blue. Initial washes on rocks using mixture of orange, violet and indanthrone.|
|Mostly done, but still looked somewhat bland ...|
|... so I deepened clouds, darkened rocks' shadows and did a w/w application of indanthrone, violet and orange. I think it adds some lovely depth to the work.|
I hope you enjoyed seeing the painting evolve, and thank you for dropping by!
