Valdez - stage 1

Actually more like stage three really, I've been forgetting to photograph it at the end of the day until today. The location is Valdez in Alaska with the wonderfully named Ammunition Island in the middle distance. There is actually  a yellow acrylic ground with a mix of Prussian Blue, Winsor Green and Permanent Orange over the top of it but as I want that green that you see in the Northern Lights to show though I am going to introduce some more saturated mixes of the aforementioned colours from tomorrow. As I am using glazes at the moment I have been looking at the work of Maxfield Parrish and might start to veer away from the desaturated colours towards much more saturated depending on the subject matter.
