Hello dear Steemians,


Today I want to present you my hard work with multiple stage experiments.


First: Coloured Background: is it good?

When I was reading about acrylic painting, I found that if your background will be from beginning on coloured then white color is more intense. So I decided to use Yellow Ochre, it is not too dark but also almost everything around has this tone. So after my sketch everything became Yellow Ochre colored.


After that I decided to do the famous clock house of our little Haven Dysart, that I already mentioned in my previous posts and you also have seen so many times in our posts. In the books it is written to start with dark colors so my picture became much darker. I was not really happy but continued. On this stage my hubby @myskye came in and saw what I was doing. He was not impressed, said that this is looking too boring and probably the painting is spoiled. Nice!!! I like his direct way of comments, that means try to repair if possible as I do not like to through away my works.


What is interesting a day or dusk with interesting dark sky and multicolors, I decided to take a dusk motif to save my painting. So three primary colors mixed together turned into thick mass of paint and without thinking too much just put the layers on sky and reflection in water.

The other thing that usually distracts people from mistake is something that many people like s boat or ship. So go ahead and just start it.


Anyway after few hours of work my final picture, hope you like it.
