20*30 oil on stretched canvas February 2015.

You can find the link to Igor Sakharov’s online lesson¬†here, which i followed when creating the painting.

This time painting i already had the idea of creating the blog in my mind so i did take pictures of the work in progress. I am so happy I did! They show main stages of creating a painting. Here they are:

I started with the water mixable paints (ultramarine and white) thinned with a little water, to get rid of the white canvas color:











After that, i used my blue paint to sketch the main objects of the painting. Later, added some shadows and lights. Worked on the sky and the sea:


Continued with the buildings in warm beige – yellow tones:


Loved the idea of creating a road with wide long strokes of several warm colors:



Added purple to the mountains on the background to show that they are remote. Went through the trees and the street lights. Here is the final result:

And some details of the finished painting:


I like how this painting looks like in my entrance hallway. It has this vacation aura, which is always relaxing and calming:)

Thank you Igor Sakharov for the wonderful lesson!

The painting is available at my etsy store:
