Sky :: Ciel

I had just a tiny timeframe today to paint… so when I arrived at this scene, I decided to paint the skies as I need practice with them… but kept on painting and could not stop.

To paint this sky I first wet it with clear water stopping at the edge of the mountain. Then I let it dry halfway through and began to put in the Cerulean and Yellow Ochre. I finished by adding some Alizarin Crimson.

Je voulais seulement peindre le ciel aujourd’hui… et je n’ai pas pu résister, et j’ai tout peint mais à une grande vitesse car j’avais très peu de temps. Pour le ciel, j’ai mouillé mon papier en peignant avec de l’eau claire jusqu’au bord de la montagne. J’ai laissé sécher un peu et ensuite j’ai mis le blue céruleen and le jaune ochre.

Chemin St-Thomas

Every time that I bring my dog to the “daycare” I pass in front of these grain silos… and every time I tell myself that I should paint these… so after cleaning the house this morning, I picked up the paints and went. So for this drawing I began by drawing the landscape with a 0.7 mm mechanical pencil by Pentel and then I painted. In the end, I retraced some of the lines with my Pilot FlexiGrip EF fountain pen.

À chaque fois que j’apporte mon chien à la garderie, je passe en-avant de ces silos de grains et à chaque fois, je me dis que je devrais les peindre… donc les voici. -)
