A Quick Look At My Painting Process: From Sketch to Finished Painting

Over the last number of years we have traveled to the New England States on our summer vacations, so I decided to do some paintings with a New England feel.  You may even spot some actual buildings from this beautiful area of the Northeast United States that make their way into my paintings.

Here is a fun look at the process of one of these paintings that I recently finished and that is available at Dutchland Galleries.  The painting is titled:  Whale Watcher's Cove.

A fast sketch of my idea with plenty of notes.

Basecoating the main elements.

Adding more elements and putting in some details.

Shading and highlighting and adding some trees and bushes.
