From Suncage

Watch a landscape painting done on location (or plein air) from start to finish through a sequence of time-elapse photos. The artist, Suncage, started with an underpainting done in various tones of red, before putting down the greens in the landscape. (Red and green are, of course, complementary colors.) At the start you're likely to think it's going to look like an Expressionist landscape, but by the end you'll see how effective the red underpainting is.
