|This is a sketch of my first scene with the sky painted. I used a wet in wet technique with cerulean blue at the horizon and adding cobalt and ultramarine as I went up. When it was still damp, I used kleenex to make the white streaks in the sky
|While that area was drying, I wet the mountain and added some exposed rocky areas with an ultramarine - burnt sienna mixture. Then I took a small flat brush and mixed sap green with june bug and ultramarine to create the trees and their shadows.
|Each area of snow was done wet in wet. The different colors and shadows give contour to the landscape
|Here the same colors are used to create the contours in the snowscape, and the same green mixture I used in the first scene for the trees.
|More trees, more shading and shadows to indicate the direction of the light
|"All Is Calm"
|The same techniques and colors were used in this third painting. I wanted the three of them to compliment each other. Each one is 8x8 and will be matted to 12x12 or in one matt all together.
