Just adding an update to show you what’s been happening to the painting this morning.
As you can see, I am beginning to define the structure of the landscape so there’s clearer definitions between sky and land and water. This is also the time I have to think about atmosphere. I want my base colors to be deeper in tone and able to recede. Highlights come on top of those later.
Secondly it’s important to think about scale. That gets easier as I add the smaller detail but at this point I have to get the allusion of perspective, disappearing into a horizon. Still pretty fuzzy, but I’m sure you can see the definitions now.
Hope you are enjoying the process.
