Oil Painting – Day 5

So I had to let the underpainting dry for a couple of days. Today I started working on the sky. I find myself being seduced by colors I had forgotten about. Cerulean Blue and Paynes Grey when mixed create a luscious blue. This is off to a good start. I still have to do glazes of color over this but the basic idea is there and the glazes are transparent. If I can create what is in my head right now – I think I’m on to something. It’s just getting it out of your mind and onto canvas. I do find it funny that I’m painting a view of West Oakland – a BART stop that most people would never go to. I’ve always had a thing for industrial landscapes.
