Autumn, a season of delight for the colorists
Autumn, a season made for those of us with colorist tendencies. It's very hard to stay in the studio with all that goodness outside. So, why resist?
While out in the field I had an urge to break a rule. I placed the tree in my painting - dead center. To counter that I put my focal point in the bottom third- the grasses that meet the right corner of the tree. Could it work? hmmmmm.
It was funny, that while working on it, it made no sense. I worked very abstractly in only large blocks of color. I painted with the local color only at the very end.
