Cuckmere Meanders to Seaford Head - Third day
After painting in the background hill I decided to make a start on the "dazzle" of the sun reflecting off the water as I will key the landscape around it to that brightness. I don't want to make the rest of the valley too dark so I need to pretty much finish this area first and then paint in everything else relative to the "dazzle". As ever in my landscapes I am mixing a lot of Ultramarine Violet into Viridian and Hookers Green to get the desired mixes for the greens, particularly for the distant trees. I am also adding tints of Ultramarine Blue into the greens for the distant hill and valley greens.
