New Painting in Progress: Victoria Harbour in the Fifties 未完成的油畫: 五十年代老維港


參考照片是一張黑白照,畫面顏色只靠想像。
油畫底層: 先建立單色光暗對比
The reference photo is a black and white one, so colors on the painting are largely based on imagination.
Underlayer applied to establish values.

續層塗上顏色:但山景太艷及太前,稍後要調淡顏色。整張畫只有海傍建築物大致完成。
The colours of the mountains are too strong, need to lower its chroma later. Only the buildings are basically done at this stage.
