Slow Sail

I decided to do the larger image first. But even so, you will notice the magnifying glass that came in handy for some details. The original photo and my smaller sketch were good references. I laid in the sky and much of the water first, since they should have a similar color and tone, but very different textures. I was quite pleased with how the sky came out; when you do wet-on-wet painting, sometimes you have happy accidents and, well, sometimes you get other results. I also used a limited palette since I have no idea what the real colors were. Thanks for looking!
