Original Creation

Spring Mist - Paul Ranson

joha59 16 May 2024

Special in this turorial is the way the mist is created: the distant trees are done with black gesso, after this partial underpainting the whole canvas was covered with liquid white and this was the base for the mist. By removing some of the liquid white and the indian yellow on the trees, these came closer; a very interesting technique. On wallpaper 40 x 30 cm.
