Using a panoramic board I could really accentuate the space and distance. I mixed a variety of greens before I started. A new colour I'm using is Naples yellow, it isn't very strong but great for nudging a colour to warm and lightening the tonal value as well.
The grass area at the top was quite light in tone and I like the lines going around the hilside they help guide the into the painting. I enojyed painting this!
I think its difficulty is a challenge that's why you keep coming back to the same scene. It is a good painting :-)ReplyDelete
Great wide sweep, love the feeling of fresh summer air to it. Your enjoyment comes through. I use Naples Yellow Light for the same reason - Rod Major uses it a lot in his landscapes, and it gives that warm light which is hard/impossible to capture with just white.ReplyDelete
