My latest whale painting for Nantucket Country from start to finish!
Starting to Paint the details!
|Closeup of one of the ships|
|Reference piece - my pencil drawing|
Here's the background. I call it the background because the water and the sky are the 'backdrop' of the whole painting.
|I add the orangey undertones but with each layer of color, they will magically float away!|
|This shot gives you an idea of the composition of the painting and how it is falling into place|
The only change that I decided to make from the pencil drawing is that this ship is not as 'large' as I had originally intended. You ask why? Well, I didn't want to cover the sky. I like it. I think it looks really pretty. I don't want to take the time to paint something that is pretty and then paint it out! Additionally, it looks clean and bright!
|This is where I am at now!|
