Silver Lace

The background is blocked in first. The dark trees will accentuate the White blossoms on the Silver Lace Vine. Mixes of Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White are used. More Pthalo Blue is used so the greens will be cool, making them drop back. Increasing the proportions of Cadmium Orange would make the green mixtures warmer.

The building is painted next. Notice how the distant wall of the courtyard is made bluer. This follows the simple rule that helps to give the impression of depth in a painting: Cool Colors Go Back, Warm Colors Come Forward. So the mixtures for the adobe building in the foreground are made warmer.

The walls are complete, had to get them finished before I can let the Silver Lace Vine grow over them.

OK, let’s do some planting! The process of painting the delicate vine is shown in this VIDEO.

Silver Lace is such a pretty vine, it can be seen all over Santa Fe. I especially love all the dangling tendrils. Thanks for following along today. Hugs,
