WIP Montreal from Mont Royal during Sunset – 5

0196

 

Ah, I hope this image makes up for the last photo – so much nicer!

Sky: I have darkened certain colours by adding more pigment. I really want the pink of the sunset to stand out. The deep shadow of the distant landscape didn’t quite feel dark enough for this kind of lighting either.

Buildings: Starting to separate them out by their distance from the viewer. Some glow brightly in the left-over sunlight. I’m having some difficulty integrating the purple with the foreground colours.

Trees: Building more layers of red, orange, green. Trying to give them texture by using salt and tonnes of water — too much water for this weight of paper.  I should’ve thought that through better.
