Here is another post from the IPad. It seems a bit blurry. I don't know if this is going to work out.
Any way, I love doing little studies because I can try different techniques. I am pleased by the result. The hay seemed daunting at first but I've got this now.
I am posting from my IPad tonight rather than my camera and laptop. I usually manipulate photos of my work until they are as accurate as possible. I think the quality of the photo may not be as good, but the ease of use is much better. We will see if I can get into doing it this way. This painting is big. I have been working on it constantly since I sketched it out two days ago. (minus some hours of sleeping)
Oh yeah, it's big. 60x60". I've got quite a ways to go, but I'm happy with how it is coming together. I plan to make the tree trunks a bit more prominent.
My plans for 2014 are ambitious; a couple of large shows, a new set of prints, a book?, many new paintings, very large paintings. Keep checking in and let me know what you think!
Happy New Year!!
Recently, I have been experimenting with value on value color changes.
I have always been amazed by how much I learn with every "tree" painting. Today was no different!
You will see much more progress on this one soon...
Have a happy weekend!
