Quiet Seas

Quiet Seas
12x16 mixed media
Started this painting at a workshop.  I had never gone to one before and was very very sadly disappointed.  But.. Lets not go there.
  I sketched in the main points.. and sponged in the values and shapes with acrylics.  Took all of about 25 mins.  I quit as I was a bit disillusioned and decided to take this home and finish it in oils. So that it would not be a wasted day I studied the painting and made mental notes as to how to complete it.  I have been trying to do the mental painting more often.  To help my brain really see what is there in front of me and not what I think I see.
  This is the final result.
