Between the turbulence of sky and rapids is a patch of still water. The greeness is slipping away with the blue and brown of winter now dominating the landscape.
I don’t use a particular range of paints for this change in colour. The red of my primary 3 in this case is Burnt Sienna. In due course I will probably replace this with Raw or Burnt Umber to add a rich brown. Reducing green is a case of less blue and yellow in mixes, and more yellow and red for browns and oranges, plus blue and reds for dark purples. Oh the simplicity of the limited pallette.
This painting uses only 3 colours, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna and Prussian Blue plus black and white. There is no medium used, only White Spirits.
Here’s the video of the painting process.
