Four Seasons 3 - Four Works in Progress

Today was a foggy, grey day but the temperature 48F (9C) is remaining fairly mild for February.

I pulled out this set of the four seasons that I had started a couple of years ago (see post on 14 April 2015) and wanted to put the sky into each of them.

Spring 3

The first one I put in a grey sky using French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and a small amount of alizarin crimson.

Summer 3

On the second one I used a mix of Antwerp blue with a small amount of cobalt blue.

Autumn 3

For the third one I used a mix of cobalt blue and burnt sienna.

Winter 3

On the last painting used a mix of Antwerp blue and French ultramarine blue.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date after I put in the land on each side of the road and the roadway.
