Work in progress

Just a couple of things I’m working on at the moment.  First a view of the North Shore from Burrard Inlet.   Don’t mind my trying out my paint colours on all sides.  Lots more painting to do, some more interesting clouds, and a mini-lighthouse on stilts to be added in the foreground.

Below, the beginnings of a school of herring.  I started by pouring on blue paint, then while it was still wet I poured on white silk paint (also known as medium) and let it run down, making white stripes.  As the paint dries it continues to blend so you get an effect of light penetrating the water from above.  Now it’s a case of “just add fish.”
