Step 1 :
was build up in exactly the same way as the last miniature starting off
with the skywash.
Step 2 :
Now with my no
8 round brush I painted the cottage on the dark side firstly with raw
umber strong, then a hell of a lot more water into the same colour for
the lighter side of the cottage.
The dry stone wall was painting again with the raw umber strong and the
roof was painting with a mixture if ultra marine blue and burnt sienna.
Step 3 :
The distant hills are simply a very weak ultra marine blue, the near
hills are yellow ochre and hookers green mixed, keep it well watered
Step 4 :
For the detail in the building such as windows and chimneys I used a
mixture of ultra marine blue and burnt sienna to make a black. I used
the top of my no 8 round brush also in the same way I put the detail on
the dry stone wall.
The path was done with a quick swath of yellow ochre
Step 5 :
For the rough grasses mixes of burnt sienna and yellow ochre then yellow
ochre and raw umber.
Step 6 :
Finally some hookers green mixed with burnt sienna for the darker
grasses in the foreground.
