Here I’ve added some darker tones and definition to the boats. I am going to let the underpainting show through on this piece and add a few more details in the next stages.
Below is the initial work starting with a pen and pencil sketch followed with some under painting and blocking in.
LAND’S END – PAINTING STAGES IN ACRYLICS
Now finished, Land’s End from Sennen Lookout
Starting with a rough sketch, I block in the main elements with an almost negative colour palette, then adding layers on top of the previously dried coat, slowly gaining the desired effect, with some paint below showing through and influencing what’s above.
