dentdumidi sketch    fog1 
 Sketch the composition  

 In the area marked red put on a wash of white

gouache mixed with really small amount of ultra-

marine blue. DONT paint the red line. Paint sky with

clean water then drop in washes of ultramarine and

cerelean blues.

IMPORTANT make sure that the sky is very pale as

you get to the mountain peaks. Suggest turning board

upside down!!

 fog2    fog final

 Paint in mountains with ultra + paynes grey being

careful not to use a lot of strokes which will disturb

the underlying white gouache wash. Star with palest

blue and add 2 glazes of the same colour


 Draw a staight line to mark the level of the fog.

Dampen kitchen paper and dab out the colour.

The paint should come away easily.

Paint in trees and foreground with tones of raw sienna

and blue. Add a little raw sienna into the mountains
