This is a short preview from a full length video.  The full length video is all about painting boats in a harbor at sunset! We turn the painting upside down to start the painting, find the large shapes and mass in the block in. When we are close to the end and the painting needs to make sense, we turn it back around and fine tune the details and the color temperatures!  We work on an 11×14 panel, palette is explained in video.  Running time 1:45
