Happy new year! After a few days of rest and celebrations it feels great to get back to my paints and brushes!
Today I had a chance to complete the painting that I did the study for a few days ago. It really helped to have that little study in front of me as I worked. The values and colours were already figured out so I just got right down to painting. I bought a large sheet (26 x 40) of Saunders Waterford 260 lb. paper a while back and worked on a quarter sheet. This is the first time I am trying this paper (I have it in block form as well) and I was very happy with it. Most of the painting is done wet-in-wet (both sides of the sheet) with a limited palette of Cobalt Blue, Permanent Alizarin Crimson and Azo Yellow.
Here is the study for the painting. I changed the format a bit but most of the info is there.
