Nice work Chuck, I really like all the life you have in your shadows!
Hi Micheal. I tried to use the exact colors that Richard used in his palette. Exceptions, I don't have Cobalt violet and my Cad. yellow light is Cad yellow Light Pure from Utrecht. The very brightest part of the sail is almost straight out of that tube. Shadow side is yellow ochre, cad yellow, ultramarine blue for the cools. add cad orange for warm shadows. the sun lite building (If I remember right) is a touch of ultimate blue. to gray down the yellow ochre and lots of white. I hope this helps.
Hi Chuck. May I ask what yellow u used for the sail .. and did you use the same yellow for the sunlit areas of the buildings?
Thanks everyone. Gail, I did struggle with some of the colors feeling dull so I tried to pop (push chroma) the sail as the center of interest and I agree maybe a little garish.When I took this photo most of the thinner darks were dry (dull) and any color with white in it or thick paint was still wet (glossy) after it dries I will varnish the painting, that should darken the darks and hopefully fix the dull impression.
Beautifully painted ! I am enjoying the varied textures that you have achieved ; the rough stone, smooth reflective water, folds of the sail etc.
