Landscape Demo

This was a fun landscape because local color was disregarded and some adjustment of the photograph.  It was a struggle keeping a figure from this composition.  The painting was drawn with a brush loaded with yellow ocher which keeps the shapes suggestive.  Halloween orange, Andrews turquoise, and Carmine where the colors of choice.  A light value wash was first applied preserving some white paper.  The wash was dried before the next mid values where established….negative and positive strokes.  Before the final dark’s the paper is totally dry.  Dark values at strategic points and calligraphy are the finishing touches to a delightful day.
