The way out

Nearing the end of the painting


I started last night on this painting. It is mainly done with the palette knife but some dry brush here and there. The sky is very fractured and I deliberately did not go for a smooth gradient. The landscape is about the darkness, the hidden and unknown. In the landscape is little textural detail but loads of colour shifts and large transitions.

During the last phase I added trees on the horizon and more inwards. A little touch up of the brightest sky was still needed, and so I did that as well. All in all I like the drama and the hues a lot.

final version but too much glare on the top of the painting.
