Step by Step Painting from a Photo


Water is a favorite subject of mine, so when I first saw this view I knew I wanted to paint it!  But there was a problem,  I was going to have to stand over the water looking in, so that I wouldn't fall into the water!  So I took a photo. 
To start the painting I put in the design with thinned down oil paint, using ultramarine blue mixed with a little red.  The canvas size is  24X30 inches.

I'll be posting more of the painting in progress.  Hope you follow along.
