Southwest Contemporary Artist


Monday, 5/26/08 – 22″x28″ Original Oil on Fine Belgian Linen – All my colors have been mixed with turpentine and MG Underpainting White.  I have used various sizes of bristle brushes to make a color sketch of the scene.  Sky: Thalo Blue, Thalo Green with a touch of Yellow Ochre.  Trees and Chamisa:  Various shades of Cadmium Yello and Yellow Ochre — to make shadows, add a little bit of Diox. Purple or Cobalt Violet to yellows.  The Road:  Various mixtures of Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Rose Grey, Cadmium Yellow.  This underpainting has dried for about ten days — I will begin to put the glazes in tomorrow.  Stay Tuned!!!
