Part 2 - Reference Photo And Planning

Secrets On The Lake, Montville, Australia, Grid.jpg

As I am painting on a large canvas, I place a grid down to help me with the initial sketch.

This grid also helps me assess the design of the composition. Notice how the important elements of the composition seem to be arranged around the intersecting lines of the grid. This is generally an aesthetically pleasing way to design a composition.

Part 15 - Make The Finishing Touches And Sign!

To finish the painting, I add some more small points of interest and some more blue to the sky and water.

After I sign the painting in a dirty red color, I call it finished!

To judge how I went, a useful trick is to view the painting as a thumbnail and compare it to the reference photo. Can you easily tell which is the painting and which is the reference?
