River Sprite - stage 1
This is a working title, not sure if I'm going to call it that yet. This will be a moonlit scene, quite simple, just a waterfall, a distant mountain and an indication of Autumn foliage in the middle ground. Hopefully hidden within the shape of the rocks behind, a small figure of a naked river sprite (really a Naiad but I already have that name in the title of a previous picture). The painting will be based on a blue green/ red orange complementary colour axis and will hopefully have a magical atmosphere through the colour and lighting. This stage has been rubbed in with a rag using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Dioxazine Purple thinned with Liquin and turpentine.
