|plein air painted in 3 greys, white and black and then just a hint of color started over the top|
Sometimes I am value-challenged. And out in the field I thought I would try this. Above is a painting I did at Serene Lake. I have to admit, I really liked painting a grey scale painting! It took all the decision making and time to mix colors out of the picture, so to speak. We had a little time left and I started to lay some color in. This is where I find wet-into-wet a challenge. It was time to go, and I happily packed it home and let it dry. (So much easier to paint over a dry painting).
Here is the next step - laying in the color and moving a snow mound back, and covering up the willow twigs that I no longer liked.
