While painting Laughter #37 I saw a download video that would help me paint the ocean. So I purchased it. But after I downloaded it I found it was an html doc file, ie. full of code and gibberish (to me, anyway). Meanwhile I finished the painting before I got the correct video download. I was happy to find that sheer observation lead me to the conclusions that were given in the video. Good news!
The video is ‘Marine Painting: The Art of the Wave with Don Demers’. Don gives a plein air lesson at a beach on Long Island and then completes a studio painting at the Salmagundi Club in NYC.
The photo submitted for Laughter #38 was so perfect; a professional photo. My painting is rough compared to it, but I think I captured likeness and character to get my point across.
