This image was painted using the digital program AR 3, under the guidance of Powell's tutorial that you can see here (http://www.williampowell-artist.com/KnifePaintingStep1.html). Oil colors were not caught up with the picker. The colors were prepared and mixed in an extra layer and then used each time with a brush and spatula. It was for me a great workout. Thank you to everyone who liked this work.:)

Stoic, regal and oh so powerful. Just love the crisp paint application
and art work that speaks to the frigid scenic beauty of this majestic
setting. So beautiful! :)

I followed Oriane great example too, my dear friend and all other mates.

I used a palette of mine to reproduce the following mixes:


I used French Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Scarlet, White, Yellow Ochre and Emerald Green from a palette I developped some time ago based on W&N watercolors names and I tried to reproduce the mixed results.
It looks like it works realistically enough (maybe a little less for darker tones unless You don't use the darker version of the same palette).
I therefore wished to share should You be interested and like to mix directly on canvas (even just over the on-going painting).

Should anyone wish to try and has got a defined palette with either real pigments or commercial hues, I might provide such starting a palette on trasparent PNG he/ she may use for a specific painting ...

Anyway it's not that easy to use it on a speedy painting, since it's not immediate to guess mutual quantities and You should work with the sharp knife mainly and the wet one (or, at least, that is what I had to do)

Wonderful painting! Very cool :) I love your colors and brush strokes.

It has a great feel to it and is truly wonderfully done oriane. Have to take a look at the site you've mentioned. Thanks for sharing. :)

Beautiful painting, and I love the idea of using a separate layer as a mixing palette!!

Mairzie, Caesar, Vaik, Belv, Marylou and Scribemike, thank you very much.

Caesar great, I'm increasingly using a mixture of colors in what I'm doing. This was a great exercise for me. Thank you my friend.:)

Scribemike, someone, I do not remember who it was, already suggested some sort of additional pad for mixing colors. This would be interesting indeed!!!

Nice painting. Interesting thread. Jim :)

What a beautiful and majestic painting, Oriane! I love the effect you've been able to bring to this painting with the mixing of your own color palette. I went out on William Powell's web site that Caesar had a link to and what stunning paintings. I've got this bookmarked for my own personal reference. Beautiful work!

A real stunner Oriane. The colour is superb and the painting masterful. :):)
