|Looking back a Vernazza (and Monterosso)|
This the photo of Traveler jim M's that I will be using for this painting.
|My rough sketch of the painting on the canvas.|
|Darks are first painted in,so the painting has structure.|
|Add Water. The water color is very important to this painting. It's a mix of Cobalt Blue and Viridian Green and Ivory Black.|
|The sky and the far mountains are next to be filled in.|
|Working forward I finally get to start on the houses.|
|Trying to make sense out of the buildings was the hardest part. The white water was a lot of fun to put in. Most of it was put in with palette knife.|
|Done! the buildings were not as much fun as I thought they would be. And working the different shades of red to get distance was a little time consuming. I know I when over my 2 hour limit on this one.|
