Process Revealed

As you can see, the image has become considerably “lighter” with the addition of reflected sky in the water. You can also see how I work… in small squares I like to call “focus frames.” These frames let me work on small areas, getting the drawing and values correct, without worrying about the painting as a whole… which comes later. I don’t always use this method, but it’s quite helpful to me when working on complex subjects. Good reference material is crucial as there is not a lot of room to fudge.
