The study was done in oil paint on multimedia artboard, which is a resin and paper product that doesn't absorb paint. Working now on canvas, I'm struck by how much more building is required to get a depth of paint and color.
That said, I like the study's narrower range of values -- having been tempted to have greater contrast, I can see now that the next thing I have to do is reduce the contrast and get back to the balance of values that I liked in the study.
The mountains in the study are in purples and blues. I'd started out the painting with those colors, repainted in a range of greens... and now I think I want the purples and blues back. Stay tuned.
