Regatta II – Mixed Media on Cradled Wood Panel – 12×12 inches

I liked Regatta so much that I decided to make another, but larger one.  However, trying to replicate a painting is a bit of a challenge and pretty much impossible.  I used some techniques I recently learned and am having a lot of fun with.

This painting took me longer than I thought it would.  I had to use two coats of gesso on top of the old painting to get rid of the marks so I could start over.  Thankfully the weather has been nice and I was able to have the layers dry in the sun.  Although a bit different, the color scheme is the same as the other painting.  I am really liking painting with greens and blues so much.  Just like being at the seaside!

I also added thicker paint to the sails.  This made such a difference that I did the same to Regatta as below.

As you can see, I didn’t add thick paint to all of the sails here as I wanted the small ones to fade in the distance.

Both these paintings are now available in my Etsy shop here.  Or you can click on the sidebar.  There is Free Shipping on orders of £75 or more.  Coupon FREE75.
