the sun had set when I shot this latest version, so don’t believe what you see for color here…just figure that it didn’t go quite as poorly as it seems. Tomorrow I head back to the foundry for wax work, so it will be a few days before further changes occur. That should give it time to dry a bit.
Saturday I put in a few hours snowing a bit more on the central peak while E read out loud from our sheepy mystery: Three Bags Full. Today (Monday) I added in the power station and the row of bushes in the morning, then remembered I hadn’t taken a picture of Saturday’s changes.
The relative abstraction of the forms from the underpainting winding through the foreground are quite a nice contrast with the storm/peaks,
The storm begins to emerge from the underpainting…I introduced another blue to the palette.
The underpainting sets the composition and tonal notes. I mixed piles of neutrals with the pallet knife using brown, blue, ochre, and white.
