This is great. I love the water and rocks Lori. Wonderful colours and blending.
I think you'd do a magic job on one of my seascape pics. Hope you tackle one! (please) :) Ro x

Exactly!!! So I can do an underpainting, let it dry then work on top..mix direct & indirect .. Will try on my next:)

Lori, indirect painting is just fine, EXCEPT, you shouldn't pick up the under layer; this means that the under layer needs to be dry or tacky and tour brush should not "agitate" it. 80 percent of plein air artists use an under painting (according to Scott Gelately, the Gamblin product manager. Use of an alkyd medium (Liquin or Galyd, etc.) speeds drying of the under painting= no mud. Stu

Just read an article about direct vs indirect painting..
I have been painting primarily in the indirect method- glazing layers... No wonder
I made mud when I did this!!! Good lesson learned!
I've read in other posts about laying one stroke & leaving
it... Hmmmm!!! Lol I do love the way wet into wet creates
such lively work.. Hoping this forum will help me learn that :))

Hi Lori

I think your painting is good and I think your shallow  water is very life like.  Happy Painting to you and smiles coming your way : ))
