I have been off work this week due to some health issues. So, rather than finish up more water colours I decided to pull out the oils again. I was in the process of this marsh scene I painted last fall near Bala, Ontario and really like the colours. The early morning light is my main interest and I am trying to achieve the mood of this morning. I have a small 6"x8" painting I did on location as a reference as well as several photos.
I still need to add all of the lights in the shadow areas, adjust values and add several hints of sunlight coming through the trees. I will post my progress in the next couple of days.
