4th Lesson - Eliminate The White On Large Canvases!

The rocks in the distance will be more purple, less vibrant and very soft.  As they come forward we can introduce some colour and sharpen them up a bit -  darks become darker and contrast more sharply with the highlights.  To make the darker colours, swap the Cobalt Blue for Ultramarine Blue.  We've made a thin turpsy wash of Yellow Ochre, Red Gold and Ultramarine Blue to get rid of all that white canvas which can be distracting sometimes.
