Little Landscape
Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 cm, first state after grossly sketching in the main forms.

Spent an afternoon at my easel. See the result above.

Oil primed canvas, seized with a mixture of white and ivory black, bound in oil, thinned with turpentine. Colours used: white, siena nat., burnt umber, ultramarine blue, chrome yellow, ivory black. Medium used: 2 parts damar varnish 1:4, 1 part turpentine, 1 part sun dried linseed oil.

Photo is a bit blurred, I'm afraid. Shall try to post a better one soon.
