Oil on linen, 5″x7″
This is a rough copy of a painting of poplar trees by Monet. I made a few changes to it because I’m not interested in making an exact copy. The blue in the background is Rembrandt King’s Blue (cobalt blue PB28 + titanium white PW6) that I added some liquin to in the lighter areas to thin it so the white of the canvas could show through. I painted the background first and waited for it to dry before doing the rest. The darker blue in the front is a mix of Daniel Smith Cerulean Blue (PB36) and Winsor & Newton Ultramarine Blue Green Shade (PB29). The yellow is straight Blue Ridge Cadmium Lemon (PY37).
