SONGS OF THE SEA
As always – I began with an underpainting. – burnt sienna and then blocked in with the French Ultramarine and Burnt Sienna mix as usual. I have begun with the sand area at the top of the painting.
This work is taken off an image I shot while on a helicopter ride one day. Near where I live is a place called The Entrance where a narrow sea inlet feeds into a large lake system. The day I took this image I was flying of a stretch of dunes and water just to the north of this area.
This painting involved several thin layers of paint to establish the almost translucent look of the water. I used a lot of medium with the paint. By the next post you will see the finished work.
If you would like to see more of my completed work, head on over to my on line portfolio.
