This is the underpainting for the second painting in my new series of landscapes focusing on the enduring strength of the land.
This is the color block in and the beginnings of creating atmosphere using a scumbling technique in the sky.
The video below demonstrated how I go about creating atmospheric clouds using a scumble. Both videos can also be viewed on my youTube Channel www.youtube.com/janblencowe
The second video shows the finished painting and how various techniques like sgraffito and compositional elements like large simplified shapes work together to achieve a balanced painting that supports my theme of a strong, enduring landscape.
Finally, here is the finished painting...
