In the Studio: 21 paintings 21 Days “Low Tide, Shacks”

In this painting I am just working on a nice and simple quick sketch of a little light filled water scene.  I like the sky with the cool greys and the warm passages, I tried to merge them without a lot of over brushing and lifted a few highlights with a tissue. Pretty much everything after the sky fell apart into a characature of the scene.

Paint the sky down to the water line and cut around the building, paint the opposite tree line right after you finish the sky.

Put a light wash on the two building on the left, I used cadmium scarlet and raw sienna but that is not showing up too correctly.  Keep these light so the shadows will show up.
