Costa Brava I

Costa Brava I
9 x 12 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

 Back from the fun workshop I taught in Spain. We started in Barcelona and then went up north about 1 & 1/2 hours to the coast, Costa Brava to paint.  I painted this today inspired by memories of the refreshing water and beautiful colors of the Mediterranean Sea. Below are some steps in the progression from start to finish.


Started by blocking in dark mass of rocks

Next added a variety of transparent blues for the water
Lifted out some of the lighter shapes on the rocks and water

Started adding thicker opaque paint for rocks, and next water to complete the painting shown at the top of this post.
