Painting Method: Start with Patches, Finish with Details

(Link to video) Jeanette and I stop in the wine country of California to paint with our friend Christopher Evans.

 

I'm using a method where I start with a simple patchwork of color and then add details with fine brushes and dry brush techniques.


I'm using a limited palette of watercolor and gouache.
1. Titanium white (gouache)
2. Cadmium yellow (gouache)
3: Yellow ochre (watercolor)
4. Transparent red oxide (watercolor)
5. Pyrrol red (watercolor) 
6. Cobalt blue hue (gouache)
4. Prussian blue (gouache)
