|Pompey Sunset, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss|
When painting, I often get so immersed in what I'm doing that I forget to take photos of the progress. In this case, I was working with a very dark photo reference which forced me to work slowly and to take shots now and then to see if the painting was working. So, below are the main steps.
|1. Getting rid of the white|
|2. color scheme|
2. At this stage, I took my time selecting the colors and figuring out how light I could push some of the greens.
|3. The foreground, the composition|
