Things are proceeding slowly at this point although I am happy with the way the water is turning out. I feel that the upper right is still a bit too light in value but a few washes of thin blue later on should take care of this. The areas of white in the water on the left hand side are reflections from the larger junk behind the sampan and help to add interest to this section. I plan on washing in some quite dark tones around them next. I have darkened the boat a little and also worked on the reflections at the same time, also some of the smaller details are coming along. The value in this photo is closer to how it actually looked at the time - the earlier pics were a bit dark.
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!
