Ice - stage 1

While "Adult Books" dries ready to be scanned for posting up I have got on with another Roadside America painting, "Ice", the location of which is in Vaughn New Mexico. I'm looking back on earlier ones in this series and can actually see some improvement for a change. I think the trick is to go for run-down buildings and locations and paint them more broken up and less accurately to the reference and then ramp up the atmosphere with skies and lighting.
There was an earlier painting called "Ice" which is now renamed "Ice 2"!
This stage was first "drawn" up with a small bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin in this morning's session and then I applied the same paint mix with a rag and Flat brush this afternoon for the tonal underpainting.
Oil on linen 20" x 16".
