Sharing the process

Thought I would share the steps involved in making my latest seascape.  
"A Dusting of Yellow"  Oil on canvas,  9 x 12 inches
                                 Available at DPWs

I started with a combination of texture and color combinations.  The texture is a mixture of oil paint, pigment and egg yoke, this mixture is nice because it dries at the same rate as the rest of the oil painting.  I put down my dominate color of blue and a point of red as a focal point.

Then a layer of yellow high light is added to bring back in light and warmth.    
The third step was to develop structure.  The last step is to refine the painting over all.
