WIP SNOW BIRCH FINISHED

Well here is Snow Birch finished. After preparing the black gessoed canvas, painting in the black and grey gessoed trees, and applying black to the trees to create the birch texture and look, I applied a very thin coat of Liquid Clear over the entire dry canvas. Applications of phthalo blue and cadmium yellow were painting on, thinly, to the top, bottom and middle of the canvas. These are transparent colours and of course when the blue meets the yellow a delightful soft green appears. Titanium white is used to paint the snow with a fan brush and a palette knife. Water lines are painted with Liquid White and a palette knife. So there you have it the finished – very beautiful Snow Birch painting. This painting is a workshop help at my Arnprior Studio Thirty Eight, studio, April 13, 2013. For all workshops click here.
