Light and Shade, Great Gable - Oil Demonstration - March 2017
A pre-prepared board under-painted with a wash of Cadmium Red and Lemon Yellow was selected for this painting.
The subject was drawn out using a 2B pencil and the 'Block In' commenced using various mixes of
Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red, very small amounts Lemon Yellow and Titanium White.
The painting was developed using the same colour mixes, plus slightly lighter tones, using more White.
In this step, Cerulean Blue and Titanium White were used for the Snow in sunlight.
I now moved my attention to the foreground slopes, using various mixes of Cadmium Red, Lemon Yellow, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean and Titanium White.
In this stage, I allowed some of the 'warm' underpainting from the board to show through.
I completed the painting by adding the sky using Ultramarine, Cerulean and Titanium White.
