Here is a Demonstration of how I paint
one of my long landscapes
This is the first wash of this painting. I have left the buildings white and
will work on them later. I have started to form the hills in the distance
and a very loose interpretation of red poppies or some flowers in the
foreground. This is a fun, spontaneous wash. I let drips happen,
splatter, and paint mixing. I go back in at different times and add
either more water with my brush or a spray bottle or more paint while this
wash is drying.
Now I am starting to work on the trees in the distance. I bring the
trees up to the buildings to create a cozy atmosphere. I realize that
the group of trees on the left side is the wrong color and the wrong value
and will have to be dealt with later. I have started adding the roofs
and little windows.
This is a close up of the little town in the distance.
