boats at the pier

New Image Reference to paint

This is a typical scene of boats at the pier, it can be in any place, Europe? North America? this is not the point.

We have a calm scene of boats and we must use just what we need of it. Maybe the sky is too flat, so feel free to paint a different sky, cloudy, stormy? whatever you need.

Use the shadows shown in that image and reflections. Water reflections are really important in these scenes, try to paint them as natural as you can, look at them and those broken borders, colors reflected, size or extension of the reflection in relation to the observer.

Also water may seem too flat, this is where you show your creation, your art. Good luck with this painting,
