Hoturo - A Work in Progress

With this painting being very close to completion (see posts on 10, 12, 17, 21 and 24 December 2015 and 02, 05, 08 and 12 January 2016) I wanted to add some of the final details to the boat and water.

One of the first things I had to change was the position of the two wind indicators on the top of the mast as I had placed them on the wrong sides of the mast.

Fortunately it is a small area, so I had to go in and cover up the original placement with titanium white, then rework the cloud before I could paint them back in where they belonged.

Using titanium white I thinly painted some of the sail reflections into the water below the red reflections and extended it down through a couple of the waves.

With black I placed the HIN (Hull Identification Numbers) on the front of the boat.

Next I thinned the rails on the bow pulpit as they were slightly too thick. I will set is aside and what else needs to be changed.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
