Painting “Shimmering Solitude,” step 2: I’ve added a light wash of cadmium yellow, mixed with a small amount of cadmium red tones the painting. I will follow it up by lightening the sky next.
Step 3 of my painting “Shimmering Solitude.” I have added a bit of light to the sky and the water reflection, using Permalba white.
Step 4, “Shimmering Solitude.” Working in a few details, I’ve mixed up some gray using pthalo blue along with cadmium orange, and now, adding more detail to the sides and shadows.
Step 5, “Shimmering Solitude.” Working in some color, I place cadmium red along the superstructure, and deepen some of the shadows.
Of course, the color selection is totally arbitrary; the original had a slightly different color scheme. Artistic license, you know. 🙂
