Local Landscapes

This thread is going to be about local landscape sketches, done in a variety of books,sizes and media

Here's one done this month in mixed media 9.5 x 7 inches in a book with canvas paper. It's a mix of acrylic, pencil, coloured pencil and I can't remember what else!

It's a misty day with Hoar Frost




The colour is a bit too warm, it was taken under artificial light.

It has been taken out as it's part of an exchange and is now in the post.

Re: Local Landscapes

Wow, that is beautiful. I so wish I could do landscapes like that. . . maybe taking Johannes classes will help me (I hope!). I also really admire mixed media and this one is a wonderful example of it! Bravo. Lucky person whoever is getting this

Re: Local Landscapes

thanks Rainy - mixed media is very forgiving! Lots of opportunities for changing things and layering, with elements showing through, which I like.

I convinced one of my students to like watercolour after all - she was about to give up on it - by showing her the subtle beautiful changes in colour she could make by hazing coloured pencil over it in places. She was convinced

Re: Local Landscapes

thank you all

Ed just thrown anything and everything into what you are sketching/painting that will make the right kind of mark - simply think what will help to achieve what you are trying to show.

Re: Local Landscapes



This is 100 yards down the road in early summer - a bit of a contrast! Not done now but I thought it would be interesting to show the difference. The yellow is the rape seed in bloom.

Re: Local Landscapes

yes

watercolour, touch of coloured pencil in there and tippex (typing correction pen) used in that haze of white cow parsley (Queen Anne's Lace) - oh and maybe a bit of white gouache
