8 X 10 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.
The tree on the left is the same tree you saw in my 10/12 post it’s just painted from a different angle.
Today, I wanted to play with values. Specifically, making the background recede and the foreground pop. I tend to want to emphasize everything and use over the top colors all the time. I’m easily overwhelmed by all the color I see in the landscape and have to carefully consider (and often reconsider) my choices. All the while I continually to ask myself what is each color doing, how is it supporting the painting as a whole?
