Finished painting

Step 6 – Finished

You need to review your work carefully. It needs to be loose and free and not rigid, but it should read as a busy beach scene.

You may need to add more colour to the umbrellas and people; you may have forgotten a few people’s heads. I added a few heads in this step.

Looking at my painting I realised that the ‘cauliflowers’ in the sky from the initial wash were spoiling the work and the eye was drawn to them. I took some white gouache paint (Chinese white watercolour would work also). White Gouache is an opaque water-based chalky white. I used the gouache to add clouds to the sky to remove the ‘cauliflowers’.
