Lesson No.18 - Breaking Up Areas of Nothing Is The Key To This Painting!
I am continually breaking up this section with more darks, more oranges, some light ochres and highlights. Breaking up large areas of nothing is the key to this painting. It is only by a lot of dots and dashes we can create movement in the water. When adding a new colour variant, just dab back into previous sections randomly to keep the colour uniform.
