A start has been made blocking in the darks and mid-tones of the boat shapes. At this stage an accurate rendering of colour and detail is not necessary, but tonally the painting must be fairly accurate. The colours used were raw sienna, burnt sienna, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue and titanium white. I always use allkyd titanium white, which speeds up the drying time. By adding a small amount of white to most mixes the painting will almost be dry within 24 hours.
