ACEO - Moonlight 1

I wanted to finish this painting that I had started last year (see posts on 20 June 2016 and 12 January 2017).

Using various mixtures of raw sienna, French ultramarine blue and Antwerp blue I painted in the pine trees.

With a wash of French ultramarine blue I put in the shadowed snow, leaving areas of white lit by the full moon in the sky.

The house and the barns were painted in with greys made of burnt sienna and French ultramarine blue.

To complete the buildings I painted in the windows on the house and the light on the side of the barn with cadmium yellow.

Lastly I put in the grasses and growies with mixes of raw sienna and burnt sienna.
