STEP 6 The Wash is Complete

Sketching the buildings in the harbor is a fun exercise in perspective.  I’ve enjoyed capturing the curve of Portofino’s famous waterfront. The pole my hand is resting on is called a mahl stick. One end hooks over the top of the canvas, the other is held in my left hand. I can then brace my right hand on the stick to paint the detail.

The oil wash is complete so tomorrow I get to start painting. See you then. Hugs, Mikki
