Large landscape: The Start

Toning the surface.










A quick sketch.











My husband made a 30 x 30 inch cradled panel for me and I couldn’t wait to paint on it. I have wanted to paint a larger layered landscape for a while.  I toned my canvas yellow because the overall color in my personal photo had yellow undertones.  I then sketch in the composition, take a step back and see if I need to add or remove things.  This process doesn’t take long because I do not want to spend a lot of time on something that I am going to completely cover with loads of paint.

I will post the finished product tomorrow.
