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 an imprimatura in red umber to define the light and dark. 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 and colour harmony in place.
13/8/18 I have completed three layers of paint. 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 and shadow of the mountain.
