The Beauty of Fall is Coming
Sep 24, 2022
Maybe not quick enough for some, but the beauty of Fall is coming. The colors have already been showing up on my palette. While waiting for my blues to dry, I have begun some studies full of fall colors. I am eager to show them to you.
But first, let me update you on Big Blue. I made some major revisions this week. There were some discordant notes, and changing those made a world of difference. Here are a few hints as to what has taken place. I do hesitate – sometimes too long – to take out a passage, but I usually follow my instincts.
Once it was decided, the changes were easy to make. Glad I like them, because I don’t have an undo button! It immediately felt like a better painting.
SO….while the changes are drying, I decided to work on some more cloud studies. This time, I am using one image and three different ways to paint it.
They all had their advantages, but the copper leaf just glows! Remember the painting of the luna moth? Same surface. It is tricky, because it is so shiny and so slick. The results are worth it. Loving this look.
Thanks for dropping by to see this week’s paintings. I hope you enjoyed them.
P.S. What do you think would look good painted on a warm, metal leaf surface? Please leave your suggestions below or message me.
