oil on gessobord, 6" x 6"
This is the last color variation for this image. For these color studies, I have tried to push the color a lot from what one would consider "normal" colors for a landscape.
Below are two photos of the beginning of this painting:
I first toned the canvas with a medium value blue (this isn't the best photo - the blue was more of a turquoise or teal), then blocked in the shapes with a brown. Next I added the grayed light blue to the ground area, trying to keep it really loose.
Below is my first try at relief printmaking. There are things about this print that I like but also some mistakes. We just finished our third week, and I am finding I really love the process.
If you are interested in the relief printmaking process, go to this website. It has lots of good information.
Have a great week!
