This was the glazing experiment/exercise done and then a landscape painted on it (to cover up the blossoms at the bottom of the painting and behind the silo). Not bad. Anyway, it's done :) Trees are not my forte, as you can see!
This first download/upload (?) shows my camera version, taken in my little art room (believe me, it's too danged small to call it a studio!).
This second version is the painting (what would fit) put on the scanner and showing the colors. This is more true to the real painting. Guess I wasn't paying attention when I quickly snapped the photo and downloaded it.
I think delicate colors don't show as well on any setting on my camera and, as I walked through the house with this painting in hand, I could see more violets and then more blues and grays, etc. So I think a glazed painting would be different for the viewer, depending on the light in the room, etc. Anyway, time to move on.
I need to seriously start thinking and working on another portrait for David Lobenberg's SP Global Love-in Challenge (will try the one the majority of you wanted me to paint in a more traditional watercolor way).
And tomorrow I go and play with Sandy Maudlin in her studio, helping her with whatever she needs while also having a whole day to experiment and play with paint and paper!
