San Miguel

San Miguel/ oil on canvas board/

This is the same study but done in a higher key (lighter overall) than the one completed two days ago. This little painting maintains the same value relationships as in the smaller study (but they are lighter). Next thing to consider: to give some atmospheric perspective (ie. to make things go back), things become lighter, greyed and less sharp. Here, I added the correct value of neutral grey into the color that I wanted to be further in the distance. This maintains the color hue (i.e. orange remains orange), but as it goes into the distance, it is a grey-er orange.
