A Test

The other day, I went out to test my new palette of pigments on a bit of scrap canvas. The subject is a familiar one, a farm that's also featured on the banner of this blog.

The picture was mostly done as a one day oil-sketch, however the blue and green sections consist of thin layers gradually built up over the course of a week. This is how azurite and malachite are best applied.

The colors are mostly to my satisfaction. I'm looking forward to starting a real picture soon.
