This painting is homework from online class I decided to take to improve my skills on the landscape. This is made of 3 colors: burnt sienna, TW, ivory black and odorless paint thinner. Objective is to learn how value works.
I ran out of white canvas and had to improvise that added difficulties to the painting. I used watercolor paper I bought in 2008 and primed it twice with black gesso, only one I have. I am sure black canvas even when fully covered by color still adds the darkness to the painting. What are your thoughts about it?
Also paint slides/smudges on such smooth surface and makes next layers application quite difficult. I am thinking to repeat after I hear feedback from the teacher to fix my mistakes. But different color and only 2: some other black and white.
