Worked on these houses, the road, the mountain and snow yesterday. I've put in and painted out the windows several times. The road color will not remain so bright.
I experimented with making the painting smaller than the canvas edge by placing masking tape on two sides. Of course in the end you'd have to remove the canvas from the stretchers and re-stretch it on the smaller sized frame.
I painted out the trees on the right and redid them. I prefer this color to the previous incarnation. I added snow. I like this pretty well except for the evergreen tree in the foreground. The color is still not right. I set this outside in the sun to dry and little black bugs got stuck on the paint.
I used some powdered pigment to make an oil paint glaze by mixing the pigment with linseed oil and damar varnish medium. Powdered pigment can be made into watercolor paint (add water and gum arabic), acrylic (add matte or gloss medium) or oil (add oil based medium.) I think that's pretty cool. See this previous post about Rousillon pigments.
I worked a bit more on this temple and added a top to it.
