The final part of this 4 part series – Beginners Acrylic Landscape Painting
This is the final stage of the painting. I now add some of the pure Ultramarine Blue and Alizarin Crimson so we can achieve the richer colours needed.
The pink in the sky is just a mix of Alizarin Crimson and White. Make sure you start with the white (titanium White) and add the crimson to it, little by little.
You will only need a small amount to create the pink…
I then start to add the pure Ultramarine blue to slightly darken the premixed blue for the sky. This means we can add a fuller tonal range to the piece and place emphasis on the corners.
This helps to bring the viewers focus on the centre of the picture.
One of the final stages is to reassess the tonal range of the piece. When we look at the land area we first blocked in with Burnt umber, it now looks too pale. We can easily mix a black using the Burnt umber and Ultramarine blue (you will need more blue than brown)
