After I made my Boardwalk painting, I decided to turn it into a huge multi-canvas piece that will include all of the Resorts along Cescent Lake. In fact, I may even turn this into an project of ALL the Disney Resorts, so stay tuned! So, for the 2nd installment, here is the Yacht & Beach Club Resorts:
I was really happy when the sketching went a lot faster for this one than the Boardwalk. I think I was still in my groove from doing that one, which is so similar in style.
And once again, I had to get creative with my painting locations. After taking a step back I noticed my lighthouse was totally off...and I didn't feel like putting my drop cloth (old shower curtain) back on the table and setting up my workshop all over again...so I just plopped on the floor to touch it up!
I always get so nervous in the paint drying period between doing the colors for the water and then adding the black shadowing. As the water is above, in its raw un-shadowed state, it just looks so unpolished and its hard for me to see if it will come together or not. And just to torture myself more, I didn't get to add the black for days...so I had to stare at it propped up against the living room wall every. single. night.
But, I'm happy to say, it all came together!
