Galway Hooker

June 29, 2017

'Inspiring'-  Un-enhanced photo of sunset' from my studio window, 10.15pm.

 

 

 

Here are images of a painting started this month, the first of four large seascapes: 

 

Began roughly sketching out an idea fresh in my head, a scene from the west coast, boat in foreground with distant cottages.  Halfway through decided to change my boat to a 'Galway Hooker'- suiting better the colour palette I have in mind.

 

Next morning I started to apply quick washes, predominantly Black, Red and Blue.

 

Thinking forward, I am adding a few dark strokes which will highlight colours to follow.  Scraping back to find my pencil guidelines.

After breaking for a month I returned to this canvas, with renewed interest.  Started to work on 'Brown Sienna' Sails, mixing the background colours in with my strokes.

 

Ready to paint the boat and add some simple rigging.

 

Finishing with some final details and then signing off!
