GLAZING & MY PAINTING OF THE SALT MARSH
This is a painting on a 16 x 20 canvas. I chose this size as I already had a frame sitting in my closet, so it was a no brainer. It will be just my luck that it turns out really well and I will wish I had used the larger canvas and frame it had! Murphy's law.
I wanted a salt marsh in early morning or sunset for a dramatic sky. High sky light and low ground light. This sounds easy but it isn't easy to pull off. So we will see how it goes. The photos of my progress are below. Now that I have gone through this painting, I think I will do a larger version with a bigger sky for more drama! Remember, your horizon line is either high or low, never in the middle!
Well, I let it sit for a couple of days and then did some minor refinements in the grass. Then I coated the entire painting with a yellow glaze. I feel it is finished now and have given it a name. I hope you like it!
UPDATE: I took this painting to the St Augustine Art Association for the "Wild Florida" show and it sold!
