Lone Tree/ experiments with value/color and mood
I am determined to explore mood through this field series. On the bottom is another value painting (similar to November 18th posting) and on top is the color I chose to paint over what now worked as a grisaille. I lost my focus and expanded my value and color range. It was then that the mood of the grisaille was lost. I guess that is why the Tonalist paintings have such mood. Limited change in value. Experience, make mistakes and explore that is the path to constant learning.
There is something about color I sometimes can't resist. I will do this composition again and limit my value more.
What is your experience with mood/value/color?
