Harborside is a new gouache painting of 2 adirondack chairs overlooking a harbor. A tranquil setting with boats anchored in the distance.
This 11″ x 14″ painting is on watercolor paper and painted with gouache.
Violet and greens are the dominant colors capturing the late afternoon light along the shore. This is from Stony Creek Harbor in Long Island Sound.
I often start a gouache painting with transparent watercolor, as I did here. I then start adding layers of the opaque gouache paint. Sometimes I leave areas of the watercolor if I like the transparency. I did that here in the sky and areas of the water.
