I lOVE the softness of this painting, with that sharp bit of sunlight left on the boat. Could you possibly share your overall approach to this painting? Thanks for posting-I'm really enjoying your work!

Infa-thank you,you are at least capable of appreciating good art hehe!

Christy-Define "overall approach"!Not gave much thought ,wetted the paper and put the colours,it took about 1/2 hour to draw and paint it,so what else can I say?

Christy said...

Oh no, you're one of those artists that are so good that the painting just paints itself!
What I'd like to know is, did you do the background first and let it dry before adding the figure and boat ? Or the other way around? Or just all at once?
And how did you preserve the white for the boat edges-they are so nice and sharp.
sorry, I'm an insatiable student of wet in wet painting right now with some degree of success but always, always learning! Thanks for any help!!

Christy,I rarely let the first washes dry first,this was all at once.The fusions and blendings couldn't have happened otherwise.I may have used the sharp edge of a used toilet paper roll to take the wetness of the boats upper side(I wetted the paper first),I started painting from top to bottom so till I come to the boat to paint the edges it was probably dry enough.You can do the same thing by wetting the paper except the parts you want to keep sharp.I sometimes do.

Thanks Nusret! I'll continue to practice. Love this medium!

I love all your works, they are beautiful. But this one really speaks to me for some reason. I love the freshness.
