Power Line Road, 5 x 7 and 9 x 12, oil on panel
Here is a 5 x 7 inch study done quickly after premixing a group of five mass colors. The power lines were edited out because I was focused on the road that angled up the mountain.
This image shows the 9 x 12 inch panel. It is a little different proportion, slightly more square. Basically the same painting, but somewhat darker. The sky became cloudier as I worked and the landmasses became darker as a result. I used the premixed colors and blocked it in using dark to light and thin to thick sequential passes. As you can see this one has a bit more information.
