Unlike the architectural paintings, landsape paintings may be done in one session, as is the one depicted here.  For this reason, decisions are made more quicly as light is rapidly changing the view.  I aim to block in my canvas so no white is showing as quickly as I can. From there, I build up forms, trying to keep my values correct relative to each other.  


The first 2 images show the location I selected looking in two different directions; I opted for the view with more light variation (1st pic).


For this painting I used a limited palette which helped me work quickly:

White

Cadmium Yellow Light

Cadmium Chartreuse

Quinacridonne Red

Transparent Yellow Oxide

Transparent Red Iron Oxide

Turquoise

My Process: landscape study
