I completed the main rock using a darker mix of the existing colors then added raw umber for the area closest to the sea (the splash zone). The foreground rocks were painted in much the same way and allowed to dry. At this point I think that they look a little light so I'll have to address that later on. I continued with the sea working my way forward but holding off with any details for the moment - everything is just underpainting at this stage. After stepping back and considering the painting from a distance, I realize that the sea will also have to be darker so the work is put aside until the next day to give things a chance to dry off for a bit.
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
