I have been dabbling with my paints again. Here is my second attempt at painting.
This time I thought I'd try painting something a bit brighter.
Inspired by the colours of the trees I see each day as I walk to and from work.
Unfortunately the colours are the only thing this painting has in common with my daily walks.
I though you may like to see how I painted this picture.
The picture above was created in just a few minutes, I started by covering the all, but the bottom inch of the canvas with a yellow & white mix of paint. I added the slightest touch of red in a couple of places while the yellow mix was still wet.
Then I painted the bottom inch with a black-brown mix and blended it upwards into the yellow. Then painted in the position of the trees with mixes of grey-brown.
If I am honest, I think I prefer the look the pre foliage pictures more than the finished picture. Perhaps I should try a winter scene that way I won't have to put foliage on the trees at all.
But for now it's time to clean up the craft room and finish that scrapbook I started.
