Hello, Watchers! This painting represents for me a breakthrough process. I am excited and thrilled actually at how this one came together!
I painted it on my lunch hour today from a scene I saw hours earlier on the way to work this early morning. No reference photo. It makes me very happy to have created from my mind's eye, memory only! A very freeing process...
In real life, the blues of the trees of this painting are much richer and the orange is lighter, calmer, and not so contrasty--the orange knows its place in the real painting.
I am using Picasa to edit these OPs and am about ready to decide to keep this new computer. When I decide for certain, I will move my Photoshop Elements license to this computer and then hopefully do a better job of photo-editing.
Anyhow, thanks for being here to hear about my breakthrough...and to all my artist friends, Happy Painting!
