The study today was about building distant cloud structures with acrylic paints. I found a great reference photograph with storm clouds for lots of drama, along with a fantastic long beach that was the distance I was looking to demonstrate.
The Long View, an acrylic painting (13.75 x 7.5) was painted on a hardboard using a limited palette (white, payne’s gray, alizarin, raw sienna and in very limited quantity yellow orche and hunter green) – well limited for me, lol. The long beach view was developed first, once established the cloud structures came next, then background hills and finally came the reflections (which were difficult to figure out how to do without them overwhelming the scene with too much contrast, the sand was complex enough).
