VALDEZ AUTUMN - WORK IN PROG. - GLAZES


"VALDEZ AUTUMN" - WORK IN PROGRESS- GLAZES
30"x30" Original Oil on Canvas
To be framed in Gold with Linen Liner

AH, THE GLAZES AGAIN! --- This is where I would like to just give up because there seems to be so much work. My walls are blank, a new year and all new canvases -- I have a lot of work ahead of me!!!

The blue in the sky is a mixture of Permalba White, Indanthrone Blue, Thalo Yellow Green and a little Payne's Grey. The highlights in the clouds are Permalba White mixed with just a touch of Cadmium Yellow and Cadmium Red -- the shadows: that same combination with a little Davy's Grey -- the darker shadows, Payne's Grey. The tall poplars: Burnt Sienna, Olive Green - some Prussian Blue to enforce the "cartoon". The shadowed mountains: Prussian Blue and Burnt Sienna. The highlights in the mountains: Chrome Oxide Green with Cadmium Orange. The same combination in the grasses in the foreground. The chamisa in the foreground: Yellow Ochre -- then a dirty brush with all the earth colors, plus Diaxozine Purple into the darkest darks. Stay tuned?

I know this is "in progress" but I already love it.
