This acrylic sketch was done on location at Frederic Church’s Olana estate, in a direct style to help illustrate the differences between direct and indirect painting. I used Golden Open acrylics to extend the working time on my palette, and used an unsealed surface to help the paint dry faster on the painting. I looked at the landscape, mixed the colors and values I saw on my palette, and applied those directly to the white surface of the board.
When this one was done (“Done” is a relative term when out sketching/painting on location with a moving light source and short time frame!), I painted a similar scene of the same vista using an indirect painting method. I’ll post that one tomorrow and discuss the differences.
