Well, after a frustrating day of errands...I decided to start a new painting. This will be a woodland scene in winter. i love the colours, warm tones against the cool blues & greens of snow. This is a photo of the first lay -in or wash of colours. I try to establish my lights and rough in of shapes of the trees.
I will post the painting at different stages of completion. I'm sure there will be times of frustration! I usually get "stuck" around the 1/2 way point. I have sometimes put the painting away for several weeks and start something new!
