After painting a lot of colorful little paintings of fruit and flowers, I felt a need to get back to reality. Winter in the Pacific Northwest is characterized by fog, rain, and dampness. We get used to the constant drizzle and wet feet. Today's 5x7 inch painting displays the foggy dampness I'm talking about. It was created on a 5x7 inch hardboard panel. I began with a wash of alizarin crimson, added the sky with a mixture of ultramarine blue and titanium white, then began working the distant trees into the sky color with a mixture of ultramarine blue, alizarin, and just a touch of sap green to gray down the purple. The grasses were painted with raw sienna, yellow ochre, and naples yellow. Lastly I used a script brush to add the trees in the foreground. More of my small landscape paintings can be seen online at Small Impressions Gallery. If you are interested in purchasing one of the paintings on my blog and it does not appear in the Small Impressions Gallery, please send an e-mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date of the entry and I can quote you a price.
