Sheriff Hutton Art Group 7th November 2009
Thank you for the warm welcome you gave me!
This is the completed painting after I made the following adjustments:
- A further 'wet into wet' watercolour wash , using pure Cobalt Blue, Raw Sienna & Cobalt Violet was introduced to the surrounding sand & wet mud. The wash was made slightly darker at the top of the painting around the boats & lighter & bluer through the centre section, to give the feeling of sky reflecting on the wet surface.
- A few random marks were made in the foreground to hint at pebbles & small rocks.
- The details of the boats were added using a mixture of Acrylic & Watercolour paint.
- The mooring ropes were painted with a No 2 'Rigger' brush using Acrylic mixes of Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium Red, Ultramarine Blue & White, to produce a range of colours from Olive Green to neutral blue - greys.
