Backyard Talk Painting Update 2

July 30, 2011

I could only manage a little free time in front of the new painting, but here’s the latest version of it with just the back line of trees painted in. Click the images to enlarge.

You can see how dark I’m going, but hopefully the detail shot here will show that there’s still a good bit of variety in there. The pigments are phthalo green and blue, chromium oxide green, raw umber, ivory black, and small amounts of titanium white.

The only brush used here was a soft #10 flat shader. The light breaking through the leaves was made by wiping back paint with a cotton swab down to the undertone layer. I’ll try and get all the the ground area covered in the next sitting.
