Painting the First Set of Mountains
To paint the first set of mountains, we mixed in SICO’s Jazz Night into our white paint. Before you mix in another colour, be sure to save some white paint for adding details later on. Once you have your colour mixed, you can go ahead and paint your first set of mountains.
Using your white paint as a guide, paint triangular shapes to make your mountain landscape. You’ll want to paint about 2-3 feet down from the peaks. While your paint is still wet, use some of the white paint you set aside to create fog at the base of the mountains. To do this, apply some white paint at the bottom of your mountains and blend it upwards. This will give your landscape some depth and create a more realistic look.
Using the same brush, you can also blend some white into the peaks of your mountains to create a snow-capped look. Don’t worry if some of the paint spills over the edges, you can clean it up after.
