A Countryside Home 11" x 14" O/P
The ground for this painting was a eleven inch by fourteen inch piece of Masonite . It was pre-stained a yellow-orange runny oil colour. I then did my usual hair dryer thing by evaporating the excess medium., leaving a film of oil colour on the surface. This surface of the panel was then rubbed with a paper towel , in order to even out the orange oil paint film. A second coat was also added using the same method.
I used my usual limited palette to paint this painting. The paint was applied with a 'rigger' brush (detail) and a number four and/or a number six 'flat' Bristol' brush. Other than the limited palette, I added viridian green and yellow ochre, which were used sparingly in other mixtures.
...Still waiting for the first snow fall.
