Waves at sundown

Step 1 :

Wet the entire paper and use yellow paint to lay the sky wash. While the wash is wet, drop some darks for the clouds.


Step 2 :

Paint the distant hills using a pale blue/brown wash. Pre-wet the bottom to create lost edges.


Step 3 :

Paint the middle ground hills using various mixtures of yellow, blue and brown. Like in the previous step, pre-wet the bottom edge.


Step 4 :

Wet the bottom area of the sky and drop in a pale mix of blue and brown to depict clouds.


Step 5 :

Wet the area below the horizon and paint the waves using a blue/brown mix. Paint the fishing boat in the distant horizon.


Step 6 :

Paint the shadow side of the middle ground mountains using a dark mix.


Step 7 :

Add details to the cliff using a thick dark mix and a rigger brush.


Step 8 :

Finally, paint a few birds around the fishing boat.
