In Progress: Landscape Painting

Lately I’ve been getting requests for landscape paintings, but they’re tough for me. Conveying distance and deep space isn’t easy. Time to practice. Here are some in-progress photos of my current attempt. It’s not yet finished; I’ll post the final version soon. -oil on canvas.

Step 1 – Horizon
Step 2
Step 3 – more blue
Step 4 – some ochre, some umber
Step 5 – some pthalo blue (to create green) and a touch of red
Step 6 – some details
I need to study up more on painters like Joseph Mallord William Turner, in whose paintings you can see for miles: ^ this is one of his watercolor landscapes.
