Looking East

This painting might look familiar. It's a painting I did a couple of weeks ago. I tried scumbling and glazing to see if I could unify the colors and create a bit of atmosphere. A glaze is a transparent wash over parts of the dried painting. It's used to deepen the color. Scumbling involves using opaque paint in an uneven layer. It creates a sort of film, and allows the first color shows through to some extent. The trees and the foreground were glazed with French Ultramarine Blue and Transparent Red Iron Oxide, and the mountains and sky were scumbled with Cad Orange, Cad Yellow Deep, and Titanium White.
