This is a detail from a painting I am doing. The detail is my focal point, a boat. Again, I wanted to focus on luminosity. The light is from the left side and the light is best to paint as a glow from within the object, the left side of the outer boat. The right inside of the boat is also receiving light. These sides have been glazed with layers of warm yellow, orange and red (transparent layers over transparent dry layers). I plan to adjust the color on the left side of the outer boat. The bench, oar, bottom and back of the boat are painted with a muted blue green to enhance my pure light colors (hues). There are no dark values so contrast of intensity (saturation) is enhanced. The top edges of the boat are painted a muted light violet blue to reflect the color of the sky and contrast with the luminous light.
