At this point I am trying to cover the whole painting with at least one wash of color - hopefully making it easier for me to judge the tones on and around the boat itself. So far all seems to be going to plan. I used a thin wash of ultramarine blue for the water but there will be quite a few more washes to come as I want the color to be graduated from front to back. Some of the reflections are getting there at this stage but I still need to make them darker and to clarify some of the details.
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!
