OSWOA - Country Road 1

Today I wanted to finish this painting that I started in a Colour and Composition class with Neil Broadfoot many years ago (see posts on 29 January 2012, 11 December 2015, 20 February and 11 August 2016), this painting started as Colour and Composition 6.

I started with the main tree in the foreground on the left side o f the road, using various combinations of French ultramarine blue mixed with burnt sienna, and continued by putting in the rest of the tree trunks and branches on the background trees.

From there I lightened the tree colour and brushed in the road, followed by darkening the colour slightly to put in the ruts in the road.

This was followed by mixing various greens using raw sienna and French ultramarine blue to put in a few pine trees and add more definition to the grass.
