painting in progress titled fallen in winter


"Fallen in Winter"
Oil - 24 x 32
I'm sharing this so you can see my normal process. I do a flexible push and pull washy map to position the main elements. It frees me to focus on the more finessed qualities of light and color once I dive more deeply into the painting. This phase took two sessions, and I got to see it in both clouds and sun, which helped me decide that this is a cloudy day piece.
