Mountain River 8×8

Class Work- Mountain and flowing river scene. Started by sketching the best design of elements, moving into a toned background and mass sketch on an 8×8 canvas in oils. Took about 4 hours. I’m used to working on much smaller canvas paper; about 4×6 & 5×7 so this was a challenge. I’m pretty happy with the small victories in this study.


Time: 4 hrs
Surface: 8×8 stretched canvas
Palette: Limited (ultramarine blue, alizarin perm., hansa yellow and titanium white)
