Deer Heaven and Dominant Hue
Yesterday at noon it became obvious that it would rain again soon so I dashed out to a nearby field. It was a slightly muted light..cool but not yet dark. Next I selected my dominant hue then my dominant value. The dominant hue is green and its variations and the dominant value is about a four/five.The earth on an overcast day appears lighter and I had to choose where to ground the viewer in foreground.
I must say the brief experience I had at my field was magical. Not only was it amazingly fragrant, but a young fawn visited me at the easel. Nice.
I am always amazed that is my job!
