Finally I use some of the porch and leaf colors to indicate the spaces in the iron fence. In this case, it’s better to paint the negative spaces with the background color rather than trying to paint the narrow lines of the fence itself. 63 Snowscape Step One Step Two I start by toning a stretched canvas with a wash of terra rosa and viridian green thinned with turpentine; this warm underpainting will serve as a good base color for building the white snow. After wiping off most of the wash and letting the canvas dry to the touch (about 10 minutes), I use vine charcoal to divide the canvas into thirds horizontally and vertically and to sketch in the general placement of the main elements: the distant tree line, the pine trees, the middle ground buildings, and the foreground tufts of grass.
Blue-violet, and a touch of yellow ochre. I add detail to the large tree trunk with a mix of burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, and yellow ochre. I add a few touches of color to the outlying areas. Finally I use a mix of ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and viridian green for dark accents in the large tree and outlying foliage. 49 Roses Step One Choosing a Light Source Natural light (such as light from a north window) is much cooler than artificial light (such as light from a lamp or studio light).
As I continue, I decide to slightly alter the direction of the lower rock formations to point toward the wave; this creates more action and a contrasting diagonal line of movement. To soften the edges of the rocks, I blend the edges with a dry sable brush. Step Eight At this final stage of the painting, I try to make sure that every brushstroke I add will enhance (and not detract from) the focal point of my painting. I decide to add the figures at the top of the headland with grayed-down mixes of the original headland colors so they don’t stand out too much.
