During the second week of the material project, we made two more foot by foot canvases.
I chose to use colour for these rather than greyscale. The first canvas was made by painting the nearest objects first and working back, starting with the rocks in the foreground, working back to the mountains and then the sky. I found part of this quite challenging as it meant that I had to paint the snow before painting the ground showing underneath it which posed obvious issues such as depth.
The second canvas was created in the opposite way, starting from the sky and working my way to the foreground. I found this way of working familiar and felt comfortable creating it. I feel as though the atmosphere of the painting comes across quite clearly, where the figure is part of the landscape and not just in it.
