The Lost City - stage 1


 I am painting this as an alternative one to put up on the Every Day Original page on the 13th of this month. It's another Islamic-style city like "The Endless City" but this one has been deserted as it is engulfed by waves of sand. Planning on keeping the colours warm, probably based on oranges and violets although the final decision will be made over tomorrow morning's breakfast coffee...

This is the first tonal underpainting stage using my usual mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin and applied with a small bristle brush and a rag. I will run another coat over the land before I start the first colour pass on the sky tomorrow.
