Winter Light    6x8    oil on panel


On Thursady I went down to Hidden Mesa. I did two small paintings there, this was the better of the two. Still using the 'dead' palette and this time I added Pthalo blue. I didn't use it that much, mostly to punch up a few of the grey colors. The shadow on the right side tree looked all wrong without any blue in it since the real shadow was very blue. The first painting I did took an hour and a half. This one only took forty minutes and came out a lot better. Probably because I didn't think too much. Just saw stuff and put it down. Wish it happened like that every time!
