Oil on canvas, 16 x 12"
My subject was a photograph of a particularly fascinating bit of local downland. I took the picture last December; the low winter sun emphasises the folds of the earth beautifully.
The following images show my painting progress:
|Intial roughing out in turpentine diluted paint (yesterday).
|Blocking in the colours using the medium
|Am I finished?All brushwork so far...
No... the final image is scraped back a little using a colour shaper.
The colours were Phthalo Turquoise, Quinacridone Magenta and Green Gold. I didn't open the Winsor Violet. But they are all lovely colours. I'm particularly struck by Green Gold, which is completely new to me.
