Church On The River 9" x 12" o/p
This painting was painted on a Masonite panel that had two coats of gesso applied to the surface and a acrylic under painting painted on top of that. I changed the colour of the acrylic under painting in this painting to a mixture of yellow ocher, white and a little cad yellow medium. Basically, just for a change.
The palette for this painting was ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, alizarin, cad red, cad yellow, Indian yellow, yellow ocher and titanium white.
The initial layout was drawn in with a wash of dark oil paint to identify the shadow areas and the outline of the rest of the layout. I let the wash evaporate for a few minutes before starting to lay in the heavier and final 'mother' colours.
This was a very enjoyable painting to work on.
