Lately I've been working on larger paintings and finishing paintings that I have started. Today I finished this 20x24. I started with an abstract design with the color and lights and darks then did some negative painting, then positive. Back and forth. This was a painting that I had started a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't happy with the composition or the color. I had the trees to light and bright and there was no where for me to go as far as light accents. The sky and snow are a violet color which I thought was very pleasing with the orange reds. This was a lot of fun once I let go and just started with a loose design. It was too tight before and I wasn't having fun with it.
I posted this on my website and also updated my website. I've got another on the easel today and will probably paint through Halloween on it.
Talk to you all later
