Margaret Shaw - Artwork - Wip Higland Lights 2

The 2nd in the proposed Highland Lights series - Burghead Harbour.  Here's the photo I took.

As I have some long thin canvases I bought earlier this year,
I had a play with the photo cropping tool to the proportions of the canvas and came up with this composition

Next a pencil drawing to test the composition and see if any changes are required. 
Slightly wider water channels in the sand comes to mind.

Image transferred to canvas and underpainting in place - quite liking where this is going.

The final painting went smoothly (as most of the work had been done )
and the tonality was the same as Highland Light 1 which was quite fresh in my mind.

Frame decided on and for sale at £75.00
