Cemetery Chapel ..7" x 9" ..O/P
This sketch was painted on a Masonite panel with two coats of gesso applied to the surface pryer to painting. No undertone was used in this piece.
For this painting I stayed true to the three primary colours. Yes, it seemed a hard thing to do but I refused the temptation to reach for some of my more familiar mixtures.
The colours for this piece were, cad. red med., cad. yellow med. ultra marine blue and titanium white. Because of the thicker application of paint, (as seen in the brushstrokes) I used an odourless solvent.
The layout of the subject was a rather quick sketch with very few details. As a result, the masses were layed in without much 'fuss' and the details were more or less squiggles of light.
I think that the result turned out to show a fun and radical little painting.
