“Out of the Mist” Acrylic on Canvas


I was so excited with this painting that I forgot to take the first few photos! Although since it only took about 20 minutes to complete, there really weren’t too many photos to take.

I started out with ultramarine blue splotched all over but left bits of canvas open. I then started to fill in with basic yellow. I used scrapers and credit cards to make marks as well as a couple of different brushes. Colors started to blend in different areas. I then added ochre yellow and splashed that around. Added Ultramarine blue to different areas on the canvas. Started to see a boat come through and decided to add a little ‘sail’ to accent.

Twenty minutes later and my husband walked in and said “it’s done”!

This is one of my favorite paintings and goes to show that you don’t have to spend hours and days on a painting. Sometimes it just happens!
