A mountain and red clouds

This lesson is designed to be as obvious as possible. Using bright transparent colors allows you to see how each subsequent wash is affected by those washes lying under it. Plus it allowed me to play with a new style of painting.

Using the same 1″ brush I mixed a transparent wash of Permanent Rose and painted a band of red clouds across the sky area.

Rinsing my brush I mixed up a light wash of Cadmium Yellow Light and started painted the mountain area. I continued to the foreground and layed in a large yellow underwash.
