50 Starts - Start 23, fish restaurant

LESS TALKING, MORE PAINTING!

I don't remember the name of this restaurant in Morehead City. Fish restaurant.

Value sketch, using purple and blue. The interesting part of this picture is that there's almost no direct light on the building, but there's a lot of reflected light. So it's all shadow, but lit shadow.



Although different parts of the building are different colors, much of it is the same value. I'm really happy with the way it came out, except perhaps for the soffit on the right. Very murky. Overall, I felt like I was seeing a lot more — every time I loaded up the brush I remixed the color. This part is a little bluer; this shadow has some green in it, etc. I didn't always render it perfectly, but it's great progress that I'm seeing it.

  1. Quite a challenge, painting a subject entirely in the shade. Wouldn't have even entered my head. Great job too!
