ACEO - Dusk 9

Today is a rainy day and I thought I would stay inside and work on a painting, so I pulled out this piece that I had started earlier this year (see post on 09 March 2017).

I mixed various greens using combinations of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, new gamboge and raw sienna and painted in the trees on the far side of the lake.

Darkening the green mixes I put in the pine trees on the island in the foreground.

With a dark of blue and burnt sienna I painted in the tree trunks.

Using burnt sienna and a touch of alizarin crimson I put in the rocks on the island.

Using raw sienna and burnt sienna I put in the grasses below the trees.
