Borderlands - stages 1 & 2

The last full-scale painting that I can complete in time for Illuxcon, "Borderlands" is a working title for this picture of a shrine or temple overlooking a normally desolate landscape that will all be about the lighting that I hope will transform the scene into something beautiful and mysterious. Low sunset golden light shines onto the distant mountains which is then reflected in the watery landscape leading to the temple. 
The first stage was "drawn" in with a small bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin. I then put in an underpainting with a rag using the same paint mix thinned with Liquin and turpentine as well as a wash of transparent yellow and orange as I want these areas to have a rich colour to them as I proceed through the painting.
