ACEO - Morning Fog 1 and 2

I wanted to complete these two little paintings that I had started a while ago (see posts on 12 September 2013 and 12 February 2016).

Working back and forth on the two paintings I started with a pale mixture of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna and painted in the furthest back trees.

I added a small amount of burnt sienna to the pale mix and painted in the next closer trees.

Adding a little more blue I painted in the next layer of trees.

Using a pale mix of raw sienna and the tree mix I painted in the the areas of water in the foreground on the first painting and on the grasses in the foreground and at the base of the closer trees in the second one.

Lastly I painted in the sun with aureolin.
