Preserving the whites - Vernazza

Using the whites vernazza

Vernazza, Italy, 15" x 11"

An exercise in preserving the whites - leaving white paper for the very brightest areas of the painting or objects that will be white.  So my plan was to have shadows in the foreground, then contrast with that, a brighter area in the middle, especially the larger boat on the right.  Then some highlights on the harbour wall, bits on the far cliffs and some whites above the harbour which I fashioned into sea gulls.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
