This is the second in my 3 part series of Lake Padden, exploring the same image but with different temperatures in the underpaintings. Part 1 was Indathrone Blue underpainting, this one is both Transparent Yellow Earth and Transparent Orange Earth. I found the blue underpainting hard to adjust to as I've always used warm tones beneath my paintings.
But I was inspired by one of my new landscape books, Mitchell Albala's Landscape Painting, to try a blue undertone. It is winter in the far north.
I also favor a wide horizontal in my paintings and enjoyed the vertical of this. It enabled the tree to shine a little better.
