A fast painting with the emphasis on the sky. Really enjoyed moving the brush strokes around on this big board. Working bigger allowed freer mark making and arm movement - it was fun!
The chalk path was tonally light and almost glowing in the low light of the winter sun. It receding away in the distance which helps the composition.
Tonally the painting is mainly mid to dark tones with a few accentuating lights which
The sun washed out the colour on the right side with stronger colour and tone on the left.
The greens are very muted - greyed down with the complimentary colour of red. I used Scarlet and Burnt Sienna for this.
Big sky and view of distance gives a vast sense of space in this painting. Using a larger board suits this picture and the muted colours are very Winter.ReplyDelete

Indeed, but what an extensive palette you've got!!
I tend to get soo lazy using more colours, ... that doesn't work for me in the end.
