Session #097, Work #089

 

This scene was super difficult, it had every problem in the book. Quickly changing sun, changing tide, atmospheric perspective, moving water, mass of random foliage, intense color, lots of drawing and subtle values throughout. I was not ready for this scene at all. I’m glad I took some photos cause I will have to study all of these issues one by one.

The Setup

50413b-setup

There is my new setup… I have already changed it as I was not happy with how functional it was.

Value

50413b-value

I can’t believe that the trees past the beach are that dark. I painted these values very far off.

The location change

I took several picture showing the change in scenery within one and a half hours.
