I arrive early when it is still dark so I can faff with where I’m positioned & composition, board size and format. Mixing some colours and being as ready as I can be before the sun comes up!
Those inky clouds where there when I arrived and dispersed fairly quickly so put them in before the light really came – using my double head lamp:
I don’t bother with details of the boats until the end, it’s more about the light and colour. I simplified the muddy area and how many boats to put in and choose where to position them too.
I did another small painting straight after see next post….
