Happy 4th everyone!
Later, when it gets dark, we’ll go to the lakefront
and watch the fireworks which are shot from a barge.
I loved using several blues here.
Colors used: all the Portland greys, graphite grey, sevres blue, ultramarine blue,
cadmium yellow deep, rose dore, and zinc titanium white.
I started by brushing a light glaze of Portland grey light over the
entire panel, then painted into the glaze with the other colors
alla prima and finished in under an hour.
I tried to not blend the brushwork too much in order
to keep it fresh and moving.
