183 Five Value Zones

I wanted to repost a video that has not been available for some time although it was very popular on YouTube. This time I posted it with Gbox. I used the larger embedding format which I thought was more visually accessible.

The video is free although I have allowed for donations up to a dollar if you feel the video helped you with your painting. But either way I hope you enjoy the video and let me know what you think of the ideas and the Gbox presentation. I really do appreciate your feedback.

At the bottom of the page I include a link to a fantastic book that expands on ideas about zones and many other topics critical to landscape painting. I think it is one of the best books on the subject.

  3. Great painting, Brad. Very good composition with lots of interest!

    What blues did you use for the topmost sky? Cerulean? Manganese?

    1. I used pretty much every blue I have–Ultramarine, Thalo, Cerulean, but no cobalt. Thanks for the kind words.

    2. Thank you. I just picked up a tube of cerulean a few days ago. i haven't bought one in years. I mainly use Cobalt Blue, Pthalo Blue, and Ultramarine. But I've wanted to explore others. I used to use Prussian Blue, but don't like how it changes over time. Cobalt is my favorite. I see it more as a true blue. Ultramarine can be too violet, and pthalo too green. but they all have a place on my palette!

      It really is a beautiful painting. You've done a great job on this one!
