New Zealand, Stroll in the Park

Key Takeaways: 

  • Painted almost only with palette knives. I wanted the colors to appear crisp and distinct.
  • Notice the subtle color variance within strokes.
  • Much of this painting is about capturing the illusion of detail. How do I capture the appearance of leaves, branches, rocks, highlights, and shadows without painting every single detail?
  • The sky has three types of blue: ultramarine at the top, cobalt in the middle, and cerulean at the bottom.
  • My strokes follow the general contours and planes.
