Very nice sunset, Alan! I did the lights across the bay thing, too. It's kind of hard to find a happy medium between the amount of light in the sky and the city lights.

I'm fairly happy with this one but I think I may go in later and add some foreground rocks to tighten up the composition and add some reflections of the city lights to the water - wish I'd thought to mask those in in advance :(

I agree - the colored washes were pretty obvious against the white paper, and I was trying to keep them thin so as not to lose the "luminosity." But, when contrasted against the black the color is much less noticable.

11" x 15". This is a commission I've been working on recently. It is Whitby Abbey [remember Dracula?] & hopefully I've set it against an "Atkinson Grimshaw" type moonlight sky. [But he painted mostly in oils] :evil:

Lots of Viridian/Raw Umber & Viridian/Burnt Sienna mixes in this one.

I did a few nocturnal paintings earlier this year as an excersize, however my idea was stricktly plein air. I wanted to experiment with matching values only, no interest in looking at colour. But i found oil was the only way i could do this because of the transparency and small amount of watercolour pigment it was not possible to evaluate tones under moonlight. Oil being comparitively opaque and thick, tones on a dark wood palette showed up fine.
I would simply select a tone that matched what i could see of the landscape under bright moonlight. The surprising result was that using this approach revealed almost *daylight* colours in the finished painting..ie blue skies/raw sienna grass etc. I had no idea what colours I was using at the time.
It was fun and very interesting, also taught me alot about tonal values not being distracted by colour at all.
I had the notion that I would hold a moonlight exhibition in the bush under the full moon...i may still do this in the warmer weather.
Loopy or what? :wink2: :rolleyes:
I would post a couple of the results but they're in oil.

Hi all, This is my first post to WC since I was pointed this way by Tridun, an avid WC member about two weeks ago (thanks Patricia). When I saw the project I could not resist. This is one I did from a photo and it started out as a daytime piece but I was not getting the effect I wanted to from the color of the buildings so I thought making it a lit night scene might punch it up a bit. I'm new to painting in general but I'm really liking watercolor and am eager to improve so any feedback is appreciated. This piece is small - about 22x15 ish and was done with a dark brown pen and ink drawing, then watercolor.a://

Hi Jeff and thanks for picking my project to make your first post I am glad you liked it.....great job on your night painting is you go to the main project page you can upload your painting with a disscription so everyone looking on that page will always be able to see it.

I love the contrast between the dark windows up top and the cheerful glow from the windows on the street. Very nicely done.

Did this one in 2003.
Painting done in about 2 hours. Used Masking fluid for the boat, sails and sun. Used wax to draw in the waves. Then, with the background done, the sun and surrounding yellows were added. The boat was painted and the shadows under the waves were defined.

Regards

Good job Magda, the only nit I have is the boat looks like its coming out of the water and the sails are a bit short for the size of the boat....great night sky....thanks for posting this one.
