Mendocino Church c2013 in progress

Mar 11, 2015 | Misc | 1 comment

Just wanted to share a little painting in progress.   In Mendocino on the coast of Northern California is a charming little church.  On one of my trips to teach at the Mendocino Art Center I captured this view of  it.  The pathway leads down to the beach.

Early washes include my rainbow colors.  I’m using my usual 3 colors:  Winsor Yellow, Permanent Rose and Winsor Blue Green Shade.  I have painted the sky with only Blue and a bit of Rose, and the trees are mostly just Blue and Yellow with a little red to dull the bright green.   In the other areas of the painting (church and foreground) all three colors are mingled and layered.  I paint mostly wet on dry paper.

I’ve used some masking fluid to mask off some of the details of the floral area with rose bushes.   mendocino church detail 2 mendocino church detail 3 mendocino church detail 4jpg  mendocino church in progress 2Mendocino Church     mendocino church finished
