  Demonstration 8

Mountain Top...Step One:

I painted a full value underpainting using raw umber and white; excellent for underpainting.

Typically, an underpainting is warm rather than cold. Colors layered over a warm foundation seems to glow marvelously.



  Step Two:

I made a mixture of cobalt blue with white, then glazed the sky. I will usually use two blues and a warm color for this type of sky.



  Step Three:

I painted the rock formations using cobalt blue and dioxazine purple mixed with white for the lighted areas. The same blue and purple (absent the white) were used for the shades.



  Step Four:

Next, the snow was painted using the same mixture; with more white added.



  Final Step:

Finally, I painted the highlights on the rock forms using light pink portrait.

Note: Subtle passages of color are not apparent in this demo.
