"Special Spots" - oil, 6"x8.5"
I take a painting class through the local art school. I love the class, as it challenges me to keep my painting improving, and understanding all the nuances of color, shape and space. I was working on another painting, which I will post soon, when I saw some photographs that Ron, our instructor had taken, and left out for us to use. My eye caught a particular photo, which I immediately was drawn to, no pun intended! It is the kind of subject that I love to paint, a rooty, woodsy, back-lit location. Perfect!
I have a couple of things I might still work on in the background, but it is basically done. I did it on a bright red toned/gessoed watercolor paper. I love letting that hot red show through!
