A step by step view of a painting.

Here is todays work, a WIP, work in progress.

This is the first stage with a basic sketch and blocked in dark areas.

My second stage with a base wash of yellows

The next step was to add warm colours into the rocks and a little more substance, still with thin washes

adding some depth and a little more contrast

followed by some further detailing, still in thin washes.

a few washes later, ready for cleaner work with thicker paint. I will start the next steps on Monday.
As you may notice it is a study of the sea and rocks again. I was looking into the water from a stone built 'pier' out into the sea when creating my sketch.
