This is the largest in my harbor series so far. The sky turned out to be the most difficult part of the whole piece. It looks like it should be the most simple...and I think that was part of the problem, it was so calm while the actual harbor part was so busy. I painted it three times before I was finally happy with it...I never do that!
This is something I wanted to experiment with, I felt like I was bringing SO many different tubes of paint when I went out to paint. So in this one I brought only the very basics (I even gave up my favorite green!) Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Ultramarine Blue, and Titanium White.
