Westport Docks

Westport Docks                              oil                          9" x 12"
In today's painting, I massed the main areas of this painting just fine, but somehow the most challenging part was in getting the warm and cool colors to stay put! I'd be happy with one area, then later go back and try to adjust the temperature without asking why!.I think I was second guessing myself in thinking about blues being cool and the browns being warm. But, as I've posted before, the question has to revolve around the temperatures of lights and darks for each area or object. I think I got it straightened out.
