Knoepfli Inn - A Work in Progress

Today I did a little more work on this painting of the Knoepfli Inn that I had started while in Magnetawan earlier this month (see posting on 03 October 2013).

Using burnt sienna I washed in the base colour of the tile roof on the Inn.

Adding a little French ultramarine blue to the burnt sienna wash the roadway was indicated.

Then using various mixtures of Antwerp blue and raw sienna the sunlit and shadowed grass on the lawn was painted.

Some of the dried and dead grass around the base of the foreground tree was painted using raw sienna and burnt sienna.

I will post this painting at a later date as more of it has been completed.
