Provincetown at Sunset
9" x 12" by 3/4"
Oil with a palette knife on cradled artist board
I took this photo of Ptown at sunset and I really loved the glow of the buildings and sky. I painted more texture and waves in the water at first, then I thought it was getting too fussy so I scraped it off. I liked what was left so I let it be. Interesting how that those accidents can happen sometimes.
While I didn't use an underpainting this time, I did sketch the buildings in with an orange/red color and left some of it show through.The birds were a last addition to help to draw you into the scene.
More Ptown to come...
