the color of light
My focus was on the color of light. I used Uart paper, which is a more medium valued paper. That meant my first marks were to decide just how light- Uart can make one go too dark if not careful. (I can be a victim;-) Next while working and choosing colors I always looked and then asked myself, "how is the color of light affecting that?' not "what color is it?" Keep in mind that "a painting is a compromise of reality" (Richard's words)... so you are ALWAYS deciding... the scene is not in control.
I never know if this is "the one." The field of my dreams that is. We are in the "getting to know you" stage. It's like any relationship; sometimes "the one" looks really good, then you realize you just don't click.
