For Father’s Day this year I painted my father and grandpa a mountain scene. I’m starting to realize that the only gift I really give my parents/other relatives is art. XD I don’t know what to say other than that it is convenient.
Here are my process pictures:
I started with an underpainting like usual.
Then I painted over the underpainting and realized that it may have been too thick because all of the paint was blending. There was no way I could get the whites white enough without mixing it with the other layers, so I had to wait for it to dry first.
After about a week, I started working on it again, starting with the clouds. Then I moved on to the mountains and trees. Sorry about the weird lighting in these pictures.
And here is the finished product!
This was so far the biggest painting I have ever done, at 24 x 36”. It definitely took longer than any other.
It was also the first time I’ve let a painting dry before finishing it. Usually I would paint wet-on-wet, but I’m happy with how it turned out.
I’m excited to try some plein air painting for the first time this weekend! Wish me luck. 😀
