I was drawn to this subject but wasn't sure if I could paint it! I enjoyed painting the huts that morning so I thought I'd try.
The reflections adding an extra element and interest - it had been a recent high tide and puddles were left.
I used my viewfinder to honed in to the colours and shapes I liked.
This is how I started blocking in the darks using a thined dark blue or brown - Ultramarine & Burnt Sienna. Remembering to repeat everything if it's reflected in the puddle.
The water reminded me a bit of snow quite light in tone and soft edges again, the shape was fun too.
It was the first day of using my brand new pochade, see below:
|It's called an Alla Prima Pochade by Ben Haggett in America.|
I will do a blog on pochades and tripods soon....
A clever painting. Somehow one knows from the muted colours that this is a winter picture of beach huts.ReplyDelete
The light gives a shivery winter feel. Massing in the darks first is something I need to remember. Love the reflections of the huts in the puddles. Be interested to see what you say about pochades and tripods.ReplyDelete
