I started with an under painting of Phthalo green,a touch of Phthalo blue, and white.

I did a quick sketch of the boats with transparent red oxide.

I started adding the sky color and a few indications of clouds.

I added a little Dioxazine purple to the bottom of the clouds and to the horizon line.

I painted an indication of the hills in the background and then started on the hulls of the boats.

I started playing with the color of the ocean in the foreground. I wanted it be a green color.
I added a little more Phthalo Blue to the water and began developing the boat reflections.

I add more motion to the foreground.

Then put in the mast and the rolled sails.
