The "Winter Beater" ... 11" x 14" ..O/P
It is nice to work on a panel that is a little larger than the last few that I have painted on.
That extra inch or two makes a nice challenge, especially in the laying out of the painting prier to laying on the colour.
Many areas still had the bright fall colours of the leaves hanging on. It was a chance to do
another last fall painting.
It is hard to believe that the palette for this painting was my usual split ( warm/cool) palette.
I really thought that the orange colours would be a real fight. I will admit that I did put the tube of cad. orange in my paint box. Yes, I did use it in a few spots that needed that little extra push or attention.
It has been exciting to be able to try and paint the colours that nature presents to us at this time of the year.
