The elbow and forearm seem just a bit thick, perhaps that is what is throwing it off?  ???

Maybe it's Popeye!

Seriously, I agree. Just a bit thinner on the forearm.

 :thankyou: VAL & STEVE, You're right of course. It took some doing to get his shoulder and shirt sleeve at the right angle first. Then My room mate was patiently waiting for me to warm up his birthday leftovers!  I will finish gondolier's arm and boat details and work on water today. No grandkids visiting.
  :boat:  I always remember you and hubby on your boat, VAL! Aren't you glad you have a motor!!! -Liz

I'm done with this painting and cleaned up my stay wet palette.  Somehow the photo looks a little darker than what it really is.  The middle ground with too many buildings were the biggest challenge. Have to take care of a major water leak in my condo, going to Kauai Island early next week for my husband's annual convention. ~Liz

Liz,
This is lovely.  Nice color choices and it was fun to watch it all come together.  Thanks for sharing the process as it is as important as the finished product.

Have fun on Kauai.  My brother just visited there and totally loved it.  They plan to go back again next trip to Hawaii.

aloha

 :thankyou: , MARYANNE for coaching me on!  :yippee: I appreciate you SO much for being a positive presence on PB!  :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:


If I can get to Waimea Canyon once more, maybe I WILL paint it, but we'll be at the Grand Hyatt Resort at Poipu on the south side.  I'm sure I should get some beautiful beach photos though or the Spouting Horn. ~Liz

Liz it is beautiful ! 

I am amazed at the technique you used to do this painting.  All the layers!  Is that was is called underpainting?  I haven't learn that yet but surely it will come in one of those classes 😆
Cheers, Annie

ALOHA, ANNIE- 
I started with the pale umber underpainting over the whole canvas.  I 'see' colors better with all of the white painted out.  It was completely painted over, but sometimes some artists use an underpainting with a complementary color that can be seen peeking through their work.  Next was the blocking in of color in their general areas.  The dark parts in the water were painted for the layering of colors that would follow.  I like the process of 'playing' with paint and creating effects and perspective.  Acrylic paints really lend themselves to having fun.  Go for it, Annie!
 :) ~Liz

Sounds like a grand vacation, Liz.  Have fun (while poor Wyman attends meetings.)

Will you get a chance to spend time with your sister?
