Here are more tries at "getting the glow" within these memory studies. A few things are sure: glow needs contrast, the trees need to be darker to make the sky glow and neutrals need to oppose pure color. I keep trying to see if it can be done differently. No luck yet.
On another note, Luchianna is gearing up her paper handling skills. Paper towels and my expensive Somerset paper have been her chewers of choice recently. She is preparing for the "Big Chew." (The photo is of Luch on my lap while I write this) If you don't know about the Big Chew please check out my December 26th post. There is still time to enter your name.
Now back to the studio... my warm-ups are making me hungry for a bigger painting.
