Landscape Practice

Using left over oil paint from the Grandma's House painting, this landscape was formed from my imagination, practicing brush strokes and the mixing of greens. The colors for the greens were cerulean blue, yellow ochre, naples yellow, cad. yellow. Then added in some darker blues, ultramarine and cobalt along with transparent red oxide, alizarin crimson. The Ampersand board was first wiped down with Transparent Red Oxide and mineral spirits to tone the board. There is also a bit of Mars orange mixed into some of the mixes.
