I enjoy hiking, and snapped a photo of a state park (Hocking Hills) last summer. This painting is based on the reference; I am exploring using a more colorist approach in it. I still don’t know how to adjust the color saturation right with my photos (I use paint.net); the original has more colors (blues, reds, violets) in it. But if I put the hue towards that, I lose the warm reds….
The painting is in acrylics, using a limited palette: titanium white, Hansen yellow, yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, burnt umber, Hooker Green, burnt sienna and Violet.
