This small painting of a village close to my home was painted using a palette that consisted of, Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red Medium, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Cerulean Blue, Alizarin, Cadmium Yellow Light and Titanium White and as the painting progressed I added Sap Green. The Sap Green, I added to the Ultramarine and Alizarin for added 'punch' in the dark areas of the painting.
The panel surface was textured prior to adding a reddish base colour. A number 8 flat brush was used mostly for this painting. As I got closer to the finished painting, I used smaller brushes to help bring the piece together and to do some work on the details and 'flourishes'.
