This is my first landscape painting of the mighty Nanda Devi mountain peak. i have carefully drawn the peak using a selection of different reference photos. again applying the principles of sacred geometry in the composition. The first stage was to apply a Imprematura in red umber to define the lights & darks. Next i have painted the first layer of colour in a more loose painting style .
26/7/18 The second layer of painting has been applied using a more wet on wet technique known as Alla prima. slowly getting the shapes & colour harmony in place.
13/8/18 I have completed 3 layers of paint layers . Now just refinement of fine details to complete the project.Have been careful to use a fine balance of warm & cool colours to convey the light & shadow of the mountain .
