It was time to paint some trees. This was somewhere along Interstate 35, returning to Dallas from Wichita, Kansas on a Sunday morning. On Crescent illustration board, with a palette consisting of burnt sienna, yellow medium, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre, and titanium white. I’m having fun with atmospheric perspective these days.
I could probably hit the foreground with a little more warm light. And a couple more long shadows coming across from left to right would help the existing shadows make a little more sense. Or I could shorten those shadows so they don’t reach the trees, but I kind of liked the way they tracked across the composition.
Just thinking out loud. Ever post a painting, then pick it apart? I do it all the time. I just don’t always tell you about it.
All part of the ongoing challenge…
