|Here I have started with the first wash on the mid range mountains.|
I used ultramarine blue mixed with yellow ochre, dropping in
ultramarine blue, june bug and indigo here and there.
|For the most distant mountains I used a weak mixture of ultramarine blue|
and yellow ochre, dropping in a little of the blue by itself for shadows
|Moving closer, I used cadmium orange, then a light mixture of ultramarine|
blue and permanent rose, adding sap green for the lower trees
|For the closest ridge behind the flowers I again used the cad orange and|
ultramarine blue, as well as june bug and the sap green for trees with a
little ultramarine blue for shadow
The closer mountains will need another wash or two adding more detail and shadows. The drama in this painting, hopefully, will be the sky. To be continued....
