Spring Pasture ..9" x 12" ..O/P
This painting follows in the footsteps of the previous two paintings in that I was finally able to use up the paint I had originally put out on my palette. It was getting a little on the dry side.
I did not use any of the grays that I had on my palette . I think not using them improves the brightness of the colours for sure.
My initial colours were darker, thin 'washes ' using odourless thinners.
This allowed me to be able to remove the colour or add to them in order to arrive at what I thought were my final base values. Once this problem had been solved, the fun 'stuff' of painting I find is just beginning.
Great fun !
