Season’s End

The days are shortening and colours are getting greyer, Winter’s coming.

In the painting of the sky, the brush strokes were very obvious because I used solvent only, and lots of it. I don’t like this effect in the sky which should be soft and misty. These brush marks are lessened by blending the paint layer. After the lower part of the painting was completed (in about 1 hour), the solvent had evaporated sufficiently in the sky to allow the paint to be blended. I used a clean large filbert brush to blend the sky colours.

The size is 12″ x 16.5″ and was painted in about an hour and a half. As usual there are only 3 colours used, Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber and Cerulean Blue plus black and white.

Here’s the video, see you soon.
