30″x40″ Original Oil on Fine Belgian Linen

This is the second phase of this painting — adding the dark, transparent and semi-transparent glazes over the underpainting after it has dried. For the dark greens: Prussian Blue and Burnt Sienna — then for the richer, lighter areas of the trees – Chrome Oxide Green Opaque and Cadmium Orange. The grasses – Burnt Sienna, Olive Green some Transparent Gold Ochre and some Alizarin Crimson. This step adds the richness to all the colors as the light is refracted through to the underpainting. These dark areas also make the opaque colors appear to dance off the canvas! Projected completion date for this work is January 7th, 2008.
