This and That, Here and There

Worked on this painting, based on a photo from New Zealand. First pass was ok, then too wet to continue working. Tonight I focused on correcting the colors by glazing on the hills and adding shadows and close texture. Hanging it up on the wall last night, I thought it looked pretty good and I can imagine seeing the gorse sprinkled hills again.

Then I started a new painting. I’d done a small sketch at the nearby pond yesterday and it had some good points and some meh-points. It’s 5.5x 8.5″ so not very big. I was working against the weather, trying to get it done before the rain.

Last night I started a new painting, trying to pay attention to the mush of trees and brush in the scene, trying to get the highlights and dark areas started. will go back and add more.
