Well this morning started out some what foggy and very cloudy so we decided to paint and write.
This is 12 x 9 on a loose canvas sheet done wet into wet.
BOCA GRANDE - SOUTH
OK - we of course start with a blank sheet of canvas
We now throw in a sky very quickly - BAM
We then throw in an ocean very - very quickly and the sand very quickly BAM -BAM
(keep in mind that the sky is still wet paint)
OK - with the sky still wet paint and the ocean still wet paint, we throw in a couple of palm tree trunks very very quickly BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM
We next throw some fronds onto the trucks - again very quickly - the sky, ocean, sand are still wet
Now using upward strokes and a fan brush we throw in the grasses
The paint on the sky has just started to get semi-dry but the ocean and sand are still wet.
Painting wet into wet is fun as you pick up some of the already wet paint while putting in the new elements and this gives a "blending" of the colors as well as soften edges and improves the dimensional illusion.
(Not happy with the shape of the cloud -it looks like a giant hawk -- so I'll go in and adjust that.)
