Today I was working on the mountains and the trees. And I kept detailing the sky. I started with the sky the last day but it was a little bit dark. So I was adding some light violets and white. There is not a big difference but now it is closer to the original model. Probably I will work on it the next day, too.
Concerning mountains and trees, the teacher explained the goals to me: achieve the darkest background color in both zones, blue-violet for the mountains and green for the leaves. Once I finished, I followed the same idea with the trunks and some parts of the ground. I used browns made with cyan blue, magenta and cadmium yellow medium.
At the end of the lecture the teacher reviewed my painting and gave me some ideas about the next day. I will start to paint the leaves. Really he already started with the leftmost trees while he was showing how to use the secret weapon for leaves: the fan brush. I must buy a couple of them for the next day (no. 2 and 6). The teacher used yellow ochre for the leaves although we will also add madder carmine.
