Playing around with paint sticks on canvas. A really fast process, finished it in less than 2 hours.
Here is an equally fast video showing a few of the steps.
|The drawing is kept very simple. Small individual brush strokes are used to loosely indicate the major shapes of light and dark.|
|I continue to build up the surface with the different tones of ultramarine blue. I let the paint dry and then go on to recover the surface with the analogous colours.|
|I start with the sky, using the phthalo green mix for the moon and then progressively lay in the the relatively darker colours in the sky then in the water.|
|Once the whole surface is equally covered with the blues and blue greens, I finally add the pale cadmium yellow in the moon and water.|
