Small Town Glimpse-8x6

email to purchase
day 2- wiped Liquin on the whole painting to re-wet the surface. i hate painting on dry board or canvas. here ive put greens in, a swath of purple in the back for the distant trees water, sky, the shadow on the dirt road, and the blue-green building. still keeping it pretty thin and letting alot of the underpainting show. i mean, whats the use of underpainting in brilliant colors if youre going to cover every inch of the canvas with the topcoat? leaving the bits and pieces show, is what makes the color sparkle.

here the road is put in and you cant see the cool orangey pinks coming thru it! also put the boats in  and worked the tree a little bit more, trying to make form out of a basic dark green silohuette from the underpainting. i think its coming along nicely. more tomorrow.
