Clovis

I didn't have time to post updates for this painting here as I was writing a last minute article for Artists & Illustrators magazine so here are a few stages plus the finished painting above.
This was another picture where I was taking the normal underpainting to finish without going to colour as I normally do. I think they have a nice quality but maybe look too photographic and haven't quite worked out how I need to apply the thicker paint that will still harmonise with the thinner more transparent underpainting layers which are essentially glazes. I will do a few more until I get it right.
"Clovis" (a town in New Mexico) was painted with glazes of my usual mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin and then the more opaque paint was mixes of Lead Tin Yellow Lemon, Warm White and Genuine Chinese Vermillion. 
This is another in my Roadside Apocalypse series of paintings. Oil on linen 20" x 16".
