Had to paint and finish a painting after starting four of those, so wet that I cannot progress anymore... Quite frustrating, so here is my eighth one, made in one hour and a half.
Because I still need to figure the right amount of primer, liquid white and so, I made this one with no primer on the cardboard canvas but sprayed black acrylic. A nice and deep color... I almost left the canvas like this!
I am still learning to paint thick over thin to avoid mud mixing.
For the atmosphere of the painting, I deliberately wanted to make it darker and more open. During the video, I found Bob's work more realistic. Maybe I am more of a boring or claustrophobic person. :) Moreover, this leaves the eyes go al around the picture in my opinion.
Sorry for the reflection clouds on the water due to the light. Could not avoid it before tidying and letting the painting dry.
