Plein air by the sea pt.2

Well, I finally got around to working on the Pier Cafe painting. It's been about 8 hours so far, I managed to kinda mangle up the water, but I'll fix it next time around. Mainly worked on the rocks and straightening the damn building out. Also, some shots of my setup out there :)


I was looking through my sketchbook and found the original drawing that sparked my interest in this scene and my composition sketches

Wow wow wow. I can't believe how good your color sense has gotten! This is incredible! I love the side by side comparison!

This is wonderful. I love the use of broken color on the cafe, and your treatment of the water is amazing to me. The impasto is really giving it life and depth. I hope to paint half this well someday!
