A bedraggled boat with loads of interesting things to paint. A vibrant buoy, netting, and worn wooden areas will really challenge our use of paints to create texture and form. There’s also a reflection of the boat in the surface water, which grounds the boat and gives it something to sit on.
We’ve got highlights, darks, shadows and detail work using a pretty dry brush.
Using six colours we will map in the under wash before moving on to the detail with our size 16 brush.
Don't get too hung up on the correct colours in the correct places; it’s about using shades to indicate where shadows are ,and lifting off to create light.
This is a really interesting subject; it’s only a 30 minute project but take your time, pause and replay any bits you’d like to see again. Enjoy!.
