I’m continuing to experiment with color (a different palette) and brushes. Palette used: cadmium yellow light, cadmium red vermillion, quinacridone magenta, ultramarine blue, sevres blue and zinc titanium white. Painted alla prima in about 45 minutes. The brushes used are my new Silver Bristlon (brights) which I am loving.
Also, before starting the painting, I brushed a thin warm color over the entire panel, then wiped most of it off. This toned the surface so that I wasn’t painting on white. I left some of this color show through on the sails and the right side of the hull.
