Hometown Festival - New WIP

Hi Everyone, Well I am back at the easel..LOL with something New.
I wanted to paint another travel scene after the two florals I just completed. I wanted a quaint village harbour scene during a festival. At first I was going to do Itlian type buildings, but I have done so many of those so I decided to do the lovely, heart warming architecture-buildings of Easten Canada / Halifax, lunenberg - Nova scotia and same sort of style in New England - Maine, area.

The painting will be entited "Hometown Festival" and will be done on a 60 x 80 cm canvas and will deptict a lovely villge harbour scene during lobster festivals with lots of bright colors, flats, the sun and some adorable fishing boats.

So here is my very rough sketch - from my imagation.

And my drawing on canvas which is basically very much like the sketch with a few more refinements. I am off to block in some color now. Wishing you a great TGIF!


I Blocked in some color very loosely. I was too tired and I did not manage to finish all the blocking.

So I Did a color test - for different ideas - I think I will remove orange and put with a very light green - as in real life I did not see any orange buildings.
