Boat On River Lesson 7

Today I have applied a bit of very wet Burnt Sienna to the dock area. As you can see from the progress so far, I like to work around the whole painting a little at a time. I find this helps me to keep a check on values and color, and I don’t get stuck in one area. I work in simple, under-painting, or foundational washes, then slowly work into details later. The under-painting really helps me to keep from over-working a piece and I don’t have areas that look like they don’t belong because they were developed too far before the rest of the piece.

I love to hear from you! Please feel free to share a comment or become a Follower!
