Painting # 2, Tide Is Out

Tide Is Out

watercolor and gouche

Tide is out. Watercolor and gouche with Derwent water soluble
pencil, charcoal pencil. Painted on Arches 140 lb cold press paper,
12 and 1/8 x 16 and 1/8 inch. There is a 3/4 inch white border 
around the entire page. 

Fun parts of painting this: using the John Lovett technique of
pouring on the dark sky and 
using a hake brush to really smooth
out those margins, leaving an area of white to 
lead your eye down
to and through the focal point. Small use of white gouche to spark 
up highlights and the fencing. Pencil work is loose! Gotta stay
loose :-) Sometimes easier said than done. 

Just want to reiterate folks, as I upload a whole bunch of paintings and learn the Paypal software, all paintings available for sale will be remarked as "for sale". Might take me a little time as I build the library.
