we make beautiful lies
Yesterday I returned from my field to have a "check-up" from the "doctor." That means I visited Richard for a little mentoring. He looked at my numerous field paintings (I have many others I have not posted...yet) and gave me 3 pieces of advice. I thought about these all night and when I drove to the site I was ready. My field was bathed in fog...WOW!!!! I LOVE this field and I love fog!
Here are the three pieces of advice:
*Remember the 3rd element
*When you examine your painting remember to think about how the movement flows..use your arms to feel it.
* a little more light in the sky at the end, just to add that punch.
I think I did it with this one. This time I used mounted Wallis. It was an adjustment not to use Chinese White and instead let watercolor be watercolor...but I do like the transparency and the luminosity it provides.
