Colebrook' Homes In Autumn 6" x 8" O/P
A small autumn painting that was painted on a gessoed Masonite panel and prestained with a Alizarin and Cad. Medium Yellow runny mixture. Again, hair blower evaporated and a paper towel rubbed finish.
My palette for this painting was a limited palette consisting of :
Cad. Red Med.
Cad. Yellow Med.
Cad Yellow Light
I also added as I painted , a Yellow Green and of course, Titanium White.
The brushes for this piece were a number four bristle and a liner brush for the addition of details.
My method, as usual, was to do the layout, in this care with the small liner brush with the darkest of the colours. I then worked in other areas of the layout where the darkest shadow areas appear . Working over the whole paneI, I applied the next darkest darkest and worked up to the lightest colours and their values. Once these areas were layed in it was now just a case of using the liner brush and laying in the finer details
For some reason, a small painting like this just seems to feel intimate and comforting to me.'til next.
