Blocking In

Here is the beginning of another landscape using acrylics.  The reference photo I'm using was taken around 11 a.m. so there was heavy shadows under the trees and brilliant light in the sunny areas.   I drive by this location every time I go to town and it always offer something different to view with the changing weather and light.

Using a #8 bristle filbert brush, the 11" x 14" Ampersand board was toned with Golden Burnt Sienna, Stephen Quiller Transparent Brown Oxide and Indian Yellow.  I let that dry then began laying in the sky using Golden Open Acrylics Ultramarine Blue with regular Stephen Quiller Cobalt Turquoise Light and gesso for white.  The rest was blocked in using the colors listed above along with W/N Hookers Green, Liquitex Brilliant Yellow Green, Golden Quinacradone Red.
