OSWOA - Summer Evening 1

Today it is 79F (26.1C) with the humidity making it feel like 83F (28.3C) which is a nice summer day with a mild breeze.

I thought I would like to work on this painting that I had worked on a few months ago (see posts on 23 July 2013 and 11 February 2016) and try to complete it today.

I started by putting in the remaining tree trunks with a greyed brown of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna and the branches on the low laying bushes at the base of the trees.

With Antwerp blue and new gamboge I put in the sunlit needles on all the trees with the exception of the one dead tree trunk.

For the mid tone needles I used French ultramarine blue and new gamboge as well as into some of the leaves on the bushes.

The shadowed needles were a mix of French ultramarine blue and raw sienna with a touch of burnt sienna.

The growies were painted with various combinations of cadmium yellow, cobalt blue and lemon yellow.
