This painting was inspired by the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan which is about a mile from where I live. It could be any large body of water, really…. I loved the challenge of painting the waves and giving movement to them. I am happy with the outcome and I can feel the fresh air when I look at this.
I used just Chromatic black (Gamblin) plus white this time to make 4 shades of this blue-green-grey color. This was painted over a Portland grey (Gamblin) underpainting so some of that warm grey color is showing through especially in the lower left corner.
