Carn Menyn Stage 2.


This is stage 2 of my oil painting of Carn Menyn. I had a good days painting other than treading in some cadmium yellow and leaving the odd foot print around the house!
 I have mentally painted the picture before I start so as to know how I will proceed, what areas to do first and which tones are going to be where. For example I decided to paint the sky diagonally (more correctly the clouds) with the blue sky matching light areas to be painted on the ground.
The day I went up to view the scene I can assure you was nothing like the painting being done.
I have to go now as one of the grandchildren has arrived!
