This is actually a colour trial for a larger painting coming up soon once I get the aurora painting finished that I have just started while I'm in the mood for trying it out. "Vale" is located at Kingley Vale in West Sussex UK.
I tried my usual mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin this time over a ground of acrylic lemon yellow. The yellow gives it more of a warmth than just painting over white so I will probably use this combination for the large upcoming landscape, probably a desert scene.
This one is painted on a relatively coarse canvas which may be more suited to trying things with thicker paint on but that is for later after I have got all these monochromes out of my system. I think for transparent paint glazes a linen surface is better.
Oil on canvas 11 3/4" x 11 3/4".
