Key Takeaways: 

  • This was a speed painting challenge. It took around 35 minutes all up. This is a great test of your instinctive painting abilities.
  • Mood and ambience are the key features. I wasn’t too worried about the drawing.
  • There’s a powerful contrast between the shadows and the warm lights.
  • Notice the thick paint and multicolored strokes.
  • The boats are vague. This plays into the impressionist style and the overall lack of clarity in this low-light scene.
