Fisherman’s Warf

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I traveled through many parts of California in 2008 and one place that inspired me  was San Francisco. When walking through the city I passed through Fisherman’s Warf, by the docks where fish is sold. This oil painting was done using a technique called glazing. The term used for a thin, transparent layer of oil paint, on top of one another to build up depth and modify colors in a painting. Before the glazing I did a burnt umber and white under painting. My main goal here was to show transparency in the colors on the crab shell.
