Sunday

I stopped by to comment on "more paint," which is beautiful and you're on to Sunday. I like how subdued this one is--gorgeous. I love the darks in the foreground.

This is a nice one. It looks like our landscape from earlier in the summer when we had a series of fires. The air really is gray and brown-not unpleasant looking-but there are different effects of light in the atmosphere.

A good example of how values work.

Your light and dark are so well-defined. It led to a simple but powerful landscape. Good job!

I agree. Off to a great start. I look forward to seeing where you're going with this--it's good as is.

Blues and browns together...How exquisite! I find myself wondering about this place. I love when a painting draws me in and I begin to think and imagine.

That is such a good lesson to remember when we paint.
