Evening on the Lake - A Work in Progress

I took out this painting that I had started last year (see post on 29 August and 08 December 2015) and decided to at least put in the sky and water.

First I lightly drew in the horizon line with a pencil.

I wanted to create and evening scene and to do this I used a mix of alizarin crimson, cobalt blue and French ultramarine blue.

I brushed in the sky above the horizon line with diagonal strokes.

I left a few little spots of the white paper showing and used horizontal strokes to midway down the bow of the boat.

Below the boat I left an area of white for the top of a wave and swept the paint upward into the white.

I will post this painting at a later date once I put in the background and remove the miskit.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
