|"Broken Light" 10x10 study in progress oil on panel|
OK. Challenge Day 3. Only 27 to go….Whew, even when you love painting it can be a challenge to complete a painting every day. Big kudos to all of you in the 30in30 challenge!
Since it’s OK to post a painting in progress (thank goodness) I got a pretty good start on this 10x10 oil tree/landscape study this morning. As with most of my recent paintings, I painted this from my iPad. I saw this beautiful old cottonwood along the Bear Creek Trail in Lakewood, CO late last spring. My three painting goals today:
- Good value organization before getting too wrapped p in the color.
- Paint each value group at the same time--So darks, then mediums, then lights.
- Keep the lights in the light and the darks in the darks.
