18×18″Original Oil on Fine Artist’s Canvas

Here is my second sitting with this painting – a combination of glazes and opaque colors (See Palette Set-Up). First I put in a thin wash of Payne’s Grey over the top half of the painting. Sky and Snow Colors: Paynes Grey, Cerulean Blue – a little ochre — and the best kept secret color – Holbein’s Rose Grey. This color will be dominant throughout the painting. Also mixed some of these colors with Permalba White for the lightest areas. The Trees: Mars Black, Burnt Sienna, Indian Red — Chrome Oxide Green Opaque for the smaller pinon trees.

I want this canvas to have a dreamy, just-waking-up-morning effect — So once all the colors were all laid down, I took a large, soft watercolor brush and “blended” the whole canvas lightly.

This phase of the painting is now complete and I will let it dry for three or four days. Stay tuned to see this completed canvas.
