I feel like it has been weeks since I was truly productive! Being under the weather and trying to climb out of the fog, and now working some kinks out of my latest piece.
The pine forest I'm currently working on has been calling to me with little response, but much desire the past couple of days! Big snows are coming so I've had to take time to find someone to switch my tires out...and getting ready for my brother-in-law to visit has taken me away from my work...aaahhh life!
As you can see it looks quite different than when I first began. I warned you that is how I work...For me, to cover a ground is a big step...and then I get to decide how to proceed. I just LOVE that part!! Sometimes it flows like butter from my fingers, and sometimes I fight with it. I began by turning it upside down and then proceeded to cover it quickly with background. I liked the idea of the yellow on top...however...it just peeks in here and there...FUN!
The problem with a deep forest is there is a TON of information. Real life has way too much information. I began laying in the background thinking it would be light enough to lay far enough into the background, but after laying in preliminary trees I still feel it needs to be pushed back a bit for what will be my foreground trees and branches...so I'm playing with sanding and glazing...that is the fighting part...but I'm not giving up yet!
I spotted some beautiful clouds the other day that I just HAD to share with you cloud lovers....Pretty up here...but we are in for quite a snow tomorrow for a couple of days...so I'm already nervous! Gotta get those snow tires on!! Here's to warm days for as many of you as can get em!
