ST ANTONINI IN THE AFTERNOON 2 – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1090574(1)

Well, as you can see I’ve been playing around with the earlier post. This time I drove the yellow underpainting into the citadel area and then drew the buildings and trees in on this underpainting before putting in the background mountains which I left very simple and painting upside down got some nice light effects on the mountain tops.

I let some of the yellow underpainting show in the citadel which further unites the foreground and middleground. I also played around washing some of the bottom squares away. I now wish I had done more. I rather like the effect and might experiment with this later. I also added some of the buildings which were lower down the slopes in an effort to unify.

Much happier with this which I hope conveys the heat and brightness  of the day.
