  1. I really love the yellows and oranges against the blue of the sky – it’s a beautiful combination! Can I ask, how does the blue and red underpainting effect the final outcome? Is it just a way of paying things out for later, or does it affect the final colour mix and feel of the painting? Many thanks!

    • Thank you Jo. This is ‘wet on wet’. The more the final layer is manipulated or blended the more the wet under layers will interact. Remember I don’t use medium, just solvent so the longer the under layers are left the more solvent evaporates the less these layers interact.
