9" x 12"
oil on Raymar board
I couldn't resist painting from this photo. I had those great outdoors colors on my palette from mixing and put them to good use.
More progress on "Cottonwood" 12" x 12" (WIP #2)
I changed the sky on WIP #1. In Kansas, there aren't too many days of those kind of perfect blue of skies
so I lightened it. I like the effect I got by lightly touching between the branches in a sort of negative space.
There is a darker blue left around the branches..it took the hard edge off the tree limbs in a lot of places, also allowed me to slim them down and I like it much better now. I may darken the midsky up to top some. Amazing what the color change of the sky does to the sunlight/highlight on the tree.
