|Li's wonderful photo of a shrimp boat going out to sea that was used for painting inspiration.|
|The only photo of the painting as it was being created. At this point|
it is all blocked in and ready for details and color adjustments.
I mixed up the base color tone for the sky and then broke that tone down into a few other colors by just adding blue , red or yellow to it. Then with intermingling of those colors, I slapped them on the canvas with big bold strokes.
Since I didn't paint in a lot of detail in the background with the big brush I didn't want to tighten up and over do the boat in details. So I only used a medium sized brush ( size 8 ) and my palette knives.
