ACEO - Peach Sky 1 and 4

Today is the first day of the Kawartha Arts Festival, held at the Fairgrounds in Fenelon Falls, Ontario.

As usual I will be working on a couple of small paintings during the day and I pulled out these two pieces that I had started a couple of years ago (see post on 06 December 2016).

I decided that I would work back and forth between the two paintings starting with the background and working forward.

Peach Sky 1

The background had been painted, by using various of Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, raw sienna, burnt sienna and new gamboge. I darkened the greens and painted the foreground pine trees.

To complete both pieces I used mixtures of alizarin crimson, burnt sienna and both blues to paint in the rocks at the base of the trees.

Peach Sky 4
