more work on the underpaintings and thank you

First, a giant thank you for all of your thoughtful responses to yesterday's question. I must say I had absolutely no idea that my blog mattered to anyone else, but me. Thank you for all of your kind words. I am thinking and sorting out the possibilities.
In the meantime here is more work on the underpaintings. I am working with Deborah Paris online again. She told me that, in order for my underpaintings to be useful for glazing, they needed to have more information. That way I can decide later if I wanted to take it out, but when glazing you can't add it later (unlike alla prima painting.)
And my new routine- a quick morning memory painting. The sky was green gray and the low fog was blueish.

Gosh Loriann these really are wee gems. Tell me are you doing an on line course with Deborah or just getting individual tutorials. sorry if that is a bit personal. Deborah helped me so much by working with me doing on line critiques after the more formal on line courses it is incredible how much I learned. I am very tempted to do her trees and sky painting course too. It really is amazing how you are always learning Loriann the tutors you have shared with us recently have had so much to give haven't they with their individual style. The great thing and the most interesting thing is that you manage to still hold your own individual style even though other tutors are directing you. I would say that is the sign of a good tutor. Best of luck with Deborah and I am looking forward to more of your posts in the future.
