9/15/10 –The second phase of this painting is what I call the “underpainting” – most of the colors have been mixed with MG Fast Drying White.  Although it might look finished now as it is, I will work the top layers of oil colors into it as soon as these paints dry….five or six days.  The dark greens are a combination of Burnt Sienna and Prussian Blue.  The top sky colors are Cobalt Blue, Payne’s Grey and MG White.  The snow:  MG White, Cadmium Yellow and a touch of Cadmium Red.  The shadows on the snow: same combination as the sky colors.  This painting should be completed in about ten days.
