like with many of my paintings I start with a warm red as a base-coat.
using “dancing” brush-strokes i paint the sky in pink with yellow and white clouds.
the bushes and trees are done in dark green with some lighter green highlights.
the middle of the water area is dark to show the reflection of the trees, the right side is light and the left is a medium shade.
starting the grass area with thick paint and then i am scrapping the grass into it with the back of the brush.
many colors are layered into the grass area.
the palms are next!
some sea-oats are added and the painting is complete and interesting!
