Painting Pool Water

Posted on February 26, 2017

I’m doing a rush job on this and working the weekend – it’s going alright, considering I’ve never done water or landscape before. For the sky, I painted in the blue and clouds, then let it dry. Today I roughed in the trees, and tomorrow I will finely paint in all the leaves on top of that. For the water I did a wash with the dogs’ legs and greenish-grey base for the pool, then I painted in the reflections as glazes on top of that. I blended by whipping a small brush horizontally across the reflections to make it look more like water, and today I added a layer of pure oil on top to make it shiny.
