oil on board. I cant hide im obsessed with how watteau creates atmosphere, maybe to a fault. It drives me crazy sometimes trying to figure out how he does it. Seriously how does he do it?! As far as I can tell his secrets are in the glazes. This is a white/sienna simple underpainting with a prussian green glaze over a dried burnt sienna glaze. The bottom left is the closest ive come to getting it right. #redgreencolorblind
This was a another glaze landscape test. Was thinking about Bruegel here. He seems to paint his darks in thin dark veils and kinda "draws" within the glazes. So kinda trying that here esp. in the rocks.
