This painting is a work in progress, but I took some photos on the way and you can see how it is progressing.
I shot the reference photograph in Honfleur, a beautiful harbour in Normandie (France).
I sketched directly the boats, using a hog brush and diluted paint
Starting to block-in the main shapes and the background.
Adding thicker paint .
At this point, I switched to painting knives.
End of session one. There is too much fresh paint to work on the canvas anymore. I have to wait for the paint to dry before coming back to it.
