Shades of the Sky
24X36
This painting gave me a tough time as I was running against time and I do not have much idea that red and yellow take long time to dry. I worked on the second layer before the first one was completely dry so lifted some some paint from the first layer, so had to wait for a week to make corrections. I used liquin sometimes for faster drying which made the painting glossy in few places and I had no clue why. Luckily in my class I was told not to worry about it, all I need to do is apply varnish after a month and the whole painting will get the gloss.
I am very happy with the painting and the gloss here and there actually looks good. This painting was a huge learning experience related to the character of the materials.

I was suprised this painting that looked so natural.
The glossy look gave such a real feel that I wanted to touch the waters.
