I didn’t have a lot of time this morning, but wanted to paint something. Being that it’s mostly sky and water I was able to get it done rather quickly.
I applied the black on both sides of the work area, blending inward toward the middle to get my reflection. I then add some black paint on both side of the painting as an under paint for the trees above the waterline, adding highlight to the trees afterwards with lighter tones of black and gray. The clouds are worked in layers with black, white and gray tones. A few lines here and there on the water surface to indicate more refection and minor movement. Some tree reflection below the land. Then a thin waterline to separate the land from the water.
Looks much like Hatteras Island’s Pamlico Sound
