Rolling Up the Carpet #10 (WIP 4)

I think it was worth the risk of repainting the sky. I exaggerated the perspective by bowing rows down in the middle, and the big clouds are bigger and lower with less little distant clouds.

The outline shows the placement of the old clouds, which was too evenly spaced, and the rows were straight across. I’m trying to learn to orchestrate the sky, which can get a bit messy. After this, if I’m unsure I will be more at ease to rework my paintings.

Light Through Trees

image

Oil on Stretched Canvas 16″x20″

This is another painting I did with light through the trees. They are more translucent, and sparse. It’s challenging, I had to do it a couple times before I was satisfied. It’s all about the negitive space, the holes, trying not to create patterns, and making it random. I think it would be beneficial to do more of these in the near future.
