30 "Rolling Hills with Yellow Sky" 2x8 oil on board, copyright Laura Gable SOLD
Today I did a demo for a friend using some of the transparent Winsor Newton oil paints that I got in the Dreama Tolle Perry oil painting workshop. I wanted to show her how nicely they go onto the board surface as an underpainting, using the medium of Gamsol, linseed oil and stand oil. Then over the top of these luscious, pure, bright colors, I floated the landscape's "true" colors to develop the painting...letting some of these under painted colors peek through in places. It's an imaginary landscape based on our Rattlesnake Mountain (the tallest mountain in North America with no trees on it).
