This is my 3rd picture for Fiona's class:
We are going to be looking at 2 COIs. I have been thinking about it and decided that the house can be the main one and the snow covered mountain at the back be the second.
Before attempting the main picture I decided to paint a smaller monotone sketch of it first, 9”x 6”, just to get a clearer idea of colour values. I used Payne Grey and made a value chart. My own criticism of this picture is that I should have used more colour on the whole. I think I was nervous that I may mess the picture. I started with the walls, but realized that I should have possibly started with the snow covered slopes at the back. I also needed to give more contrasts for the snow at the back I think. It took me about 2 hours to complete this sketch. I waited for paint to dry and painted in layers….another first for me! This is the result:
