Up the road
AGAIN I harken back to the post previously about using new eyes. I look outside and everywhere I look once I drive out of the neighborhood a few blocks is beautiful, gorgeous, countryside. I've painted so many versions of the "vineyard." To someone else it may seem redundant but I see something new everytime. I not only paint what I see but I love to simultaneously change my color harmonies and see how to build it. I always do best if I paint the forest before the trees and it's especially fun if I paint the details after the drying. It's easier to get the big shapes. The atmospheric effect can come from a simple scumble of the of medium and a warm color. and a tightening of the harmonies.
