Hey there, here’s another painting that I did in Thursday’s workshop. It was a fairly quick study that took about 45 minutes. I was exploring warm and cool values of different green mixtures, and trying to lay them down naturally, using the grey /green mixture for the trees in the background and the warmer tones for the trees in the foreground. I wanted to try pushing things a little bit more than normal and I quite like how this turned out. The Green in the foreground I thought was a little bit bright, but after letting it sit for a while I quite liked it.

I’m starting to do smaller faster studies where I get my color pinned down as well as my values before adding detail. Primarily, I want to try working on getting the correct color temperature between foreground and background elements. We’ll see how the next few work out.
