Granite Cliffs 1 - A Work in Progress

I wanted to do a little more work on this painting that I had started last year (see posts on 05 November 2016, 05 February and 07 March 2017).

Using various mixes of alizarin crimson, burnt sienna, French ultramarine blue and raw sienna, I painted the shadows onto the rock cliffs, the boulders and the rocks in the water.

With a green of raw sienna and French ultramarine blue I put in the pine trees scattered throughout the rocks.

The dead trees and branches were put in with a mix of burnt sienna and French ultramarine blue.

I will post this painting again once the water has been completed.
