Vieux-Nice painting: Act III

08.16.08 | Comment?

Don’t freak out! This is just the first layer of color. I decided to work first on the primary colors and a few grays with acrylics. I wanted to get the whole canvas covered with its general color for each area.

The nice thing about yellow is that it’s not very opaque which allows me so still see my sketches underneath the layer of paint. I will use those as guidelines for the next layer where I will start shaping some windows, doors and balconies.

You can see the progression of this painting by going back to Act I and Act II
