Near Crater Lake oil on linen 8" x 10"
This is from a photo I snapped while driving through Crater Lake National Park. I used a warm underpainting here that was a mix of transparent red oxide and alizarin crimson. I started with a middle value of the underpainting, then wiped out the light valued areas a bit. The main shapes were then sketched in using the same oxide/crimson mix. Using that basic value set up, I then began with local color and edges to finish.
