adjusting what you see and Dwight William Tryon
Pouring rain and strong winds kept me in the car this morning. I only had a few sheets of 6x12s, which made it a challenge when I chose to paint a straight row of trees. Decisions about placement and how to break up the strong horizontal straight line feel were important. Colors and shapes were manipulated. Very subtle changes of warm and cool were used to make it calm yet still visually exciting (hopefully.) I couldn't help but think of Dwight William Tryon.
The Blue Lantern, arts journalism for the love of it was an enjoyable read, check it out when you have time.
