Working on Langezandt Fisherman’s Village
Currenty working on a painting of Langezandt Fishermen's Village
Base colours for a painting I'm doing of Langezandt Fisherman's Village

Above is a photo of how I start a painting. Base layers first, to get layered colours and basic lighting or shapes.

Slowly add detail

As you can see, I start adding detail as I go. I wasn't happy with the houses and general direction of the detail, so I started again. This happens more often than you think! Sometimes things work, sometimes they don't!

I've lightened the sky for now and started redoing the bottom section. Once I've added more detail I'll start with the light and dark contrasts.
