|Beginning of the painting. |
Canvas is rubbed with some
Raw Umber and Cadmium Red.
Then the drawing is sketched in.
Although we typically travel independently, we decided on a tour so that we could leave most of the planning to someone else.
|The Palette of colors for this painting|
|Dark colors are painted in first.|
|With the darks painted in, it's time for the sky and water. These are the big areas of the painting and get the painting moving when they are done.|
|It's close now, just the poles to add. At this point I was a little nervous about putting them in. But I knew it needed them.|
