Autumn in Korea

in Art

When my wife (a native of Seoul, Korea) and I lived in Korea, we bought a number of paintings by local artists. A couple that we both especially like are of of countryside scenes in autumn, a most colorful time in Korea. She's been bugging me for months to do something similar--using the two we have hanging in our house for inspiration. I finally gave in and did this scene of a farm, with an upper class (yang ban) house in the foreground instead of a simple farmer's hut.

Here is my step-by-step process for anyone interested in doing a similar painting.

The first step was to cover a large canvas with liquid white.

I let the liquid white set (but, not dry) for about an hour, and then began painting in the light blue sky. Allowing the white to bleed through in places suggests clouds in the far distance.

A little more blue in the sky. At the left, a tiny touch of red to suggest autumn light.

While the liquid white and blue are still wet, I used titanium white to start suggesting clouds.
