Two versions, same painting... I wiped this underpainting off a million times- one right after another, all day yesterday. I couldn't stop myself. I didn't want brush strokes so I relied on a tissue rather than a brush. It needed small areas of value change in the tree mass and sometimes it was too much and sometimes not enough.
I am a nut case. I see what I want and can't get it! Below you see the "inspector" informing me this one needs work.
Corot painted the soft, gentle light of France.
Did you know? His hazy landscapes with misty grays veiling nature's color, an effect achieved by overpainting while his underpainting was still wet.
