September 8-11: Regularly scheduled painting

September 8

sept8I like how this turned out in general. However, I figured out that water, even when it’s dark, needs to “read” light. Light bulb moment.

September 9

I have some ‘splaining to do.

September 10

I tried to catch up and do two paintings.

sept10I ended up with one weak painting.

September 11

sept11I really like this. I think the reflection needs to be a little blurrier, even though it really wasn’t. And it read more like water than previous attempts. Interestingly, I added a gray way over the water and then it really looked like water.
