unfinished, oil, underpainting with 3 layers of glaze
Here I am working WAY out of my comfort level. I am painting 5 of these glazed pieces at the same time. Glazing is slow painful work. Deborah quoted from Edgar Payne. "Mix brains with paint." Ah...so often they are forgotten and the painting is left to their friend, impulse.
I am holding my vision tight in my head. If it becomes unsure..time to stop and think.
6x6 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.
Back to the reservoir on this very cold spring morning. It was good to be visiting my muse, the reservoir. I rarely take a plein air painting back to the studio to work. The color harmony in this piece was rather disjointed. So I tried to pull it together.
