Evening at the Cove, 12x16
Number Five in the 'Make a Comment and Maybe Win a Painting Give-Away Contest'.... I can't wait to see what the final painting, number six, will be.....and when it will be painted and posted.
I spent an idyllic peaceful evening straddling a large log, one foot up on a rock while bending to the right and leaning over to make each stroke as the sun was setting. The next morning it took me an hour to figure out why I was feeling so sore.
The board I used was an old trashed painting that had a dark green on it (similar to the shadowed green you see) and I began by putting in the light water and sky shapes. It was fun as the visual ideas took shape quickly and the board color stood in for the greens in the painting for a long time before I moved them to their finished hue and value.
Make a comment. Enter to win. Now I'm giving away two.....one is so fun, why not two?
