Here the masses are established. Kenn stressed the fact that after establishing the light condition as quickly as possible keep to it. The light changed during the demo via clouds and sun angle but he basically stuck with the original light unless compositionally something interesting could be achieved
Kenn first put in the darkest notes of the painting and then developed the main interest area first, including the light areas. The focus was on establishing the focal point and develope outwards
Kenn layed down a quick stain to give a bit of location to where he would sketch with pencil the buildings. He also gave great attention to the location of the pine trees and and how to arrange them. In reality they were tapered in height small to large. He chose to make the middle one the shortest thus breaking up the big bigger biggest repetition. Good tip!
