Kamillah Ramos was game to paint another hour with me after class so I did a quick study. The problem I'm finding is that the paint hasn’t the gamut for the water color. (It's rare in WNY to have that insane saturated aquamarine, but we’re having strangely clear skies). On top of that, my camera hasn’t the range to record the color in the painting very accurately, but I’ve given it my best shot. Ahem.
I see this scene as a Maxfield Parrish kind of thing, in unearthly light. I think it’s worth repainting in a more studied format; do you?
Here’s the set-up… again for benefit of my students. Laid down darks first, then midtones, then lights; then refined the shapes.
