REPORT-25

 

Started with 1/2 sheet of 140lb. Cold Press Arches Paper.  House drawn in.  No other pencil marks.

Used very large round brush to wash weak coat of Raw Sienna on all the whole area.

 

This will give some idea of the size of the brush shown above ,on the left is a number 12 round , on the right is a number 4 round

 

 

Ultra Marine Blue, Cobalt Blue for the sky, brushed on still wet paper.

Used Burnt Sienna with Ultra Marine Blue for any Grays you might see.

 

Paper was dried, clump of trees painted behind house. Masking fluid added for the tops of the blue bonnets

 

Worked on foreground, as I don't carry a tube of green all greens were mixed in the palette or on the paper.

 

My palette

Is Ultra Marine  Blue.Cobalt Blue and Antwerp Blue.

YELLOWS:    Winsor Yellow and Aureolin(Cobalt Yellow) Winsor and Newtons Never any other manufacturers they might fade. 

REDS:              Permanent Alizarin Crimson, Winsor Red, Cadmium Red Light, Burnt Sienna

                         and Paynes Grey.

Antwerp Blue and one of the Yellows produced 75% of the greens in the picture.

 

 

Trees on the left side painted in.

Foreground developed, there was some masking fluid to save the white paper (top of Blue Bonnets). House painting in

 

Removed trees completely from behind house.

This was done with Magic Eraser, see the website for details under Techniques (leftside of Home Page).

 

Replaced trees behind house and developed more of the foreground.

Added sky and other details.  Finished Painting

 

Have fun copying this study See you next week.  Try to finish this in about 3 to 4 hours.  the sky with a large brush and NO FUSSING  Try ver( going back and forth)  Put the colours down with large broad brush strokes.  I started in the top left  corner and worked very rapidly with diagonal brush marks across the sheet.    Regards Jim
