"Backdoor To Seal Bay" - SOLD

For this painting I used last week's value sketch and the original photo as references. It is amazing how much less room there seems to be on a 6"X6" canvas panel with an oil brush in my hand and a 5"X5" piece of watercolor paper with gouache on the brush! Maybe I should check those brush sizes... But I finally got the drawing right. My goal was to get the values and then work on "color recession", meaning that the distant objects look that way because of their color. I think it worked!

  4. Really lovely land and seascapes - love the foggy one underneath too. Amazed you think there's so much space on a 6"x6"

    I'll get there ...
