Docked Boats In Sunny Waters

In this video, Vinita takes you through the process of painting a serene tropical water scene, complete with boats and reflections. Using a provided reference photo, Vinita simplifies the scene with a sketch and then paints the final piece. She walks you through the painting process, starting with the blue sky and clouds using cerulean blue and yellow ochre. Then, Vinita transitions to painting the water, paying attention to the color and value changes as she goes from the background to the shoreline. She uses a combination of yellow ochre and ultramarine blue to create the illusion of depth in the water. Finally, Vinita applies some pure yellow ochre to add texture to the sand. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from this creative, award-winning artist.
