Cinque Terre Sunset - Episode 4
This session was devoted to developing more buildings. There are so many! With so many windows!! By the end of this painting time, I was beginning to feel like there may be hope. With a large section of buildings now filled in, the hill is beginning to take shape. The buildings are so colorful, a feature that makes this area so charming. Blues were mixed from phthalo blue + white, with other colors to dull and/or tint, such as burnt sienna, quinacridone violet. Yellows were created from hansa yellow + white, with other colors such as diarylide yellow, indian yellow, added for pops of color and slight bit of violet to dull the color. Oranges were made from hansa yellow + naphthol red light, with added colors to dull, such as burnt sienna, pine green, red violet. The windows were placed with a dark mix of phthalo blue + burnt sienna + red violet. Dark line work around the roof tops were done with the same color.
Uma and I are now questioning why we picked such a busy subject on such a large canvas, but there is no turning back now! One step at a time, just the buildings were originally built will get us to completion.
