9x12 I think) pastel/watercolor on Uart
Before I left for the Olympic Peninsula I had to go to Downey Road once last time. It was beautiful. My question was , what IS essential? What can I leave out and make a stronger feeling? I began by underpainting in the skeleton colors in effort to create a glow from underneath. I am once again trying to leave more of the underpainting showing. Consciously choosing, more frugality.
I really wanted to paint the way it felt, and ignore the details of how it looked.
