ACEO - Industry 1

This is one of three pieces I started earlier this year (see post on 22 August 2016) that I wanted to finish. I started by using various muddy colours to paint in the smoke stacks on the factories and the different buildings.

I finished the lower toxic sky with aureolin, cadmium yellow and a green of Antwerp blue and new gamboge. The upper sky was put in with Antwerp blue.

With burnt sienna and Antwerp blue I painted in the smoke emitted from the larger, closer smoke stacks.

Using cadmium red and cadmium yellow, I put the various warning lights on the smoke stacks and buildings.

The ACEO shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 140lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $20.00 and sold unframed.
