Update # 2 – Late August

8 Nov

After taking the cloudy sky to this point, I started to focus on the water.  I laid in the first wash and then worked specific areas to lighten some areas and deepen the horizon.  Confession: the level of detail in the water frightens me!  I almost did not know where to start.  I decided I had to make a decision to start somewhere.  I chose to start with the lower left corner of the water– that way I could focus  my attention on a specific area and begin to develop some detail and work outward from there.  It was a good decision as I could see where it was going.  Well, that worked for a while.  Then I got a little anxious and wanted to start pushing some paint around.  I had more fun painting the water in this manner.  I must have applied five layers of glazes.   Good to remember: Each glaze has to dry thoroughly before you apply the next – or the second glaze will lift off the first glaze.  Really not a good thing!

 

Then I looked to the foreground and decided to slop some paint around in this area. I knew I had to deepen the under painting.  So I played around in this space.  The next painting session I will focus on the grasses and fence.  Then I will go back into the water.  The overall painting is looking darker that it will be… this is part of that awkward stage
