Sunset 1 - A Work in Progress

Today I am painting at Kawartha Artists’ Gallery KAGS with a small group of fellow artists including Neil Broadfoot and Lucie Lemeiux Wilson.

Neil gave a demonstration on painting in a morning sky. I decided I would like to do a couple of paintings including a winter scene with morning skies.

On this piece, the paper was wet above the area where the snow would be on the ground.

Aureolin was then brushed in just above the snowline and gradually lightened as it went up towards the top of the sky.

A little of the pale wash was then brushed into some areas of the snow.

Burnt sienna was used into the still wet aureolin in some areas to show the changing colours of the sky.

Towards the top of the sky pure alizarin crimson was painted in, followed by Antwerp blue for the clouds into the still wet paint.

This painting was set aside to dry completely before I would be able to paint in the background hills.

I will post this painting at a later date as more work on it is completed

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
