Big shape marina

Whereas yesterday was all about slow observation, perspective and lines, today was about quick sketches and big shapes. In the third day of the Anacortes workshop we worked on simplifying those shapes. I confiscated all the pens and we went straight from pencil to paint without the structure of lots of little lines. I think it was a successful exercise because the results were quite impressive but the highlight of the day for me — city-dweller that I am — was watching a seal eat a fish in the harbour near where we sat.

    i really like all your little bouncing shapes which really keeps the eye moving back and forth
    creating a nice depth. This would have been even more fun if you had included that playful
    seal Shari 🙂

    What is the name of the light sky blue in the reflections–or what colors did you mix it from?
