Small bakehouse acrylic painting first layers

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Dutch: Bakhuisje
This is a small building constructed  around an oven close to a farm house.

Made a sketch  when  I went Outdoor painting with oilpastels.
Now I am using this sketch as a base for this  painting on canvasboard of 30x40cm (12×16 inches)

Only the first layer was a normal fast drying acrylic, rest of the layers are going to be with the slowdrying Golden Open Acrylics.

First layer was a even coat of Burnt Sienna,
Second layer I worked with Titanium White and Burnt Umber.

Yesterday I have added the third layer with:
Titanium white, Burnt Umber, Phlalo blue, Ultramarine Blue,
Hansa Yellow light, Cadmium Yellow,  Yellow Ocre, Chrome green,
Red Oxide and Naphtol red
