Well, not really gone fishing, but have been working on a new picture of a few fishing boats. It has been a fun week here in the Studio, have been doing a little bit of everything.
In the beginning of the week, I sketched these funny illustrations of a few animals.
Mouse and Mushrooms
I have been making a little progress with my large boat painting, I have added colour to the little shed on the hill and also some more colours on the first boat. There is a lot to do on this one, so I am moving slow on it. And in the meantime I am working on some smaller pieces. Here below is a new christmas illustration I completed yesterday, the Advents Calendar.
And here it is finished. This illustration is available as prints and cards, and you can buy them here!
Yesterday I sketched up a new boat painting, and as reference I have used a picture I took while in Gothenburg earlier this year.
Here is the start, and again this picture had some reflections in it and that is what I had to start to get right when applying the layer for the water. The only change I made from the original photo was to add clouds to the sky and also adding this little moored boat in the foreground.
This is the colours I’ve been using for the boats above, and as you can see I have only used a few different pigments and then mixed the colour I wanted. I love working with wet paint and I use both wet on wet and wet on dry techniques. I use wet on wet for the sky and the water and wet on dry on the rest of the picture.
Tomorrow I will start a new project but I will post about that next week. So until then, have a great week all!!
