This is a much bigger version of the slough(18x18) which I have been working on for the past 6 months (granted 3 of which I just looked at it and grimaced.) After speaking with Deborah, on Wednesday, I have been thinking about value. Wondering about how my use of color and temperature that sometimes sacrifices value. So that is my next focus.
It's funny that what I know...I don't do. I realize that value directs the eye. Place the darkest dark and lightest light in the focal point. Have a dominant value.
Painting is continuous discovery and learning, so full of duh! moments.
