Late Winter Melt 6" x 8" O/P
The scene seemed quit warm to look at but in reality today was below freezing on the thermometer.
My attempt at beginning this painting was similar to the previous painting, "Horse Farm". I chose to apply a really thinned down dark colour to the middle ground, paying attention to the "bigger picture" for comparison of sizes of objects. (comparing one to the other). As before, I used my finger to help direct the loose colour where I wanted it to go. After this, I left the painting for a few minutes while the OMS evaporated, leaving a dull smear of thin paint.
From here it was a simple case of of applying the mother colours to the objects in the scene. Or, as my cohorts would say,"finish putting the puzzle pieces together". Finishing would be adding some highlights and adjusting some values.
Another fun little painting.
