Alameda bay, stage 2 / by debbie rich

This week saw a big burst of painting, and I'm excited about the progress of my Alameda piece. Using oil paint and colored pencil, I did a modified version of my typical wavy water pattern. I like this more subtle approach. Played with a speckled texture for the rocks and started laying in the grass and wood patterns.

Once this is dry, the next stage is to finish the rocks, grass and wood. Maybe do more with the background shoreline but not much because I want to keep it a bit abstract. Here is stage 1.
