The Silver White is working nicely as a very transparent, milky glaze over the orange and blue sky. It’s making the sky recede a lot more than it did when it was all orange, and is picking up some very nice warm / cool vibration from the brightly coloured layer beneath it. I can’t reach the top of the painting when it’s siting on the floor (it’s eight feet high), so I’ll have to move the platform over tomorrow so I can complete the work, work on the step-ladder for a couple of hours.

In addition to glazing the clouds to make them less technicoloured I’ve added a line of Foundation white along the line of the horizon where the salt flats are furthest away, making the landscape feel deeper too.
