8x10 oil on Canvas
It was bright and sunny today and it usually means that colder weather is on its way. I started this painting by doing a quick sketch from a photo, painting in the darkest darks, coating the canvas with transparent red iron oxide and a little diox purple. I then painted it with a palette of permanent alizarin, ultramarine blue,cobalt blue, cadmium red, cadmium yellow dark, titanium white. I constantly study other artist's work to discover how they get their pictures to look a certain way. This palette is similar to Jennifer Mcchristian's plein air palette: white, cad yellow medium, cad red, alizarin, ultramarine blue, and yellow ochre. Indian yellow and sometimes thalo red rose as an underpainting. (I read this in an older post, so I'm not sure if she still uses this)
This painting is a street in Dundas near University plaza.
