Beach Hut painting demo Part 2

Next came the fleshing out of the grass mid tones and highlights, and the simple block in of the mid values of the hut and sand.
The sea and distant headland came in after that as a mid tone/ mid value.
Then came the re-adjusting of colours and values all over the canvas until I was satisfied that everything was on.
The final stage was left for tightening up edges and final adjusting of values and colours, some blending in the sky, and adding interesting colour notes to the shadows in the sand.
