Norwegian Landscape

“Men, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose direction and begin to bend.”
Walter Savage Landor

Norwegian Landscape

4″ x 4″ x 2″ Golden Fluid Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

This was a fun project!  I have 4 hours in this little painting.  There are layers and layers of acrylic glazes, gradually building up the color.

I started with a canvas that I had primed with black gesso.  I drew the lines in with a watercolor pencil.

Then, I painted the pieces in with Golden transparent yellow iron oxide mixed with a dab of titanium white.

The last two are the midway point,  after 2 hours….

I hope you enjoyed seeing the process.  🙂
