Large Aspen in Process...
If this were a sculpture I would say it is blocked and some of the larger shapes are roughed in...I guess that works for painting as well. I've been playing around with things a lot more than I usually do when I start a piece. I usually know more of what will happen than I have with this one. I'm having FUN! I first painted the main trees and decided I was too bored, so I put some papers in place and have begun to paint the trees on the paper. I enjoy immensely the texture that applying paper affords my aspen trunks...sort of 3-D effect if you will...however slight. Then I began to play with shadow color as I also began to lay in some leaves. The photo has a TON of leaves...I'm deciding as I go just how many I want to show.
I'm liking showing some of the sky color so I may leave that...even my put a tad back...who knows at this stage.
I don't know about the rest of you who paint from home, but I am still hearing the call of my house as I paint and plan the next one in my head...I feel very pulled in several directions some days...and today is one of them. My husband is flying home from a business trip and so I am very aware of the mess I've made while he was gone...oh bother!!
I am also accidentally playing with my computer editing and found some fun buttons to push that make the sunrise pics I took rather interesting to me...You would have had to see the pic when I started to know just how neat this is...(yep, that word dates me!!)...And I also wanted to show you the difference in my world within 5 minutes...You see the sun and the beautiful clouds...and then...the fog...Not kidding...it took about 5 minutes to go from one to the other...WOW, what a place!
Have a great day!!
