This week I've been trying to get more Three Trees done, and in the process i am changing the way i do them. I have been experimenting more with colors and layers (which was the original intent of the series...a playground for color and composition). I like pushing myself to get to new places...but a lot of those experience happen unintentionally...so I can NEVER recreate them no matter how hard I try (other painters I'm sure know this very well.)
Here is an example... I started using a radically different base color and layered it with a light blue-grey wash. My vintage train ledger paper paired nicely with the earthy tones...especially the greenish one.
I have a lot of events coming up this fall/early winter so I am trying to get ahead of the game in getting inventory ready. I think this is a good start!
