The next step in Watch Hill Sunset is painting the sky and water. With this large canvas using my initial sketch as a guide. I started painting the sky and water and continued moving forward in the painting. The composition is already done from my previous step so I use that to lay in the color. I follow the values or the light and dark areas of the painting that are done with the burnt sienna paint. The color looks a little more blue than it really is.

When photographing paintings it is difficult to get the same color as the painting. I will try and get a better photo in the next step. Check back to see how the carousel painting of the flying horses at Watch Hill, Rhode Island progresses.
