Evening on the Lake - A Work in Progress

I thought since I was going to be working on a sailboat painting I may as well develop some of the sketches that I did when we were on the Stoney Lake Boat Cruise earlier this year.

I decided to use the sketch of Sailboat 7 (see the post on 29 August 2015) and I worked on it until I was satisfied with the basic outline drawing.

Then I transferred the drawing onto the watercolour paper for this painting.

Next I used liquid masking fluid to protect the sailboat from the paint I would put onto the background.

I then set the painting aside to let it dry before I will sketch in the background.

I will post this painting at a later date after I have decided on the background and painted in the sky and water.
