It's nice to work on something simple for a change. There's a row of trees I see every day on my way home from work. As this is the first time in years that I've lived in a climate where leaves change colors in the Fall, I enjoyed gauging the season by their transition from green to gone.
Two more tiny paintings today - these are 3 x 4 inches.
I've also started another large painting, but I'm trying hard to produce a few of these small ones every week. I need to fill the collection of frames I bought, and I also need a good variety of sizes for the two shows I'll open in March.
I've been working on this painting for about a week now, and finally it's done. Not only does this kind of detail take a lot of time, but I wanted lots of contrast between areas of light and shadow, and in order to accomplish that, I painted the shadows in several layers.
