Yesteryears' Barns 10" x 12" o/p
The support for this painting was a Masonite panel that had previously had two coats of gesso applied to the surface and two coats of a light raw sienna with a touch of orange acrylic also applied to the surface prier to painting. This under colour was approx. a number four in tonal value.
There was a slight change in my limited palette for this piece as well. The limited palette was, Prussian blue, ultramarine blue, cad red med., quinacridone rose, cad yellow med. yellow ochre and titanium white. I also use sparingly in areas, grey med.
My medium was odourless mineral spirits which I used sparingly as well. I also used a 'round' brush on this ten inch by twelve inch panel .
Once I had drawn in the basic composition, the painting seemed to paint itself , as the expression goes.
Thanks for checking it out...
