"Above Big Sur"
A step by step from study to studio painting
From step 3 to 4 I start building up details in the foreground
little by little. Again, the backgroud is still virtually untouched
and the middle ground is slightly detailed. Besides actual
details added by the brush, color plays a huge part in creating
depth, or what I like to say atmospheric perspective. Remember
Not all distant values become bluer in the distance that's why
it's so important to paint on location. Accuracy of color and
value comes with experience painting outdoors from life!
