Well, like I mentioned at the start of this painting...I'm stuck! In order to keep the flow going I stopped work on the large piece and did a couple of "Forest" studies. I have posted the images here. They are just works for colour, experiments in season change and patterns of light. These are 9"x12" canvases that I have ready in the studio with a wash of "burnt orange" toned canvas. I like the warm orange because I seem to paint with cool colours and the orange shows thru to warm up my work.
These studies are not finished paintings so I usually "loosen" up and avoid my dreaded "detail". I will probably varnish these and sell them.
