This is painted from photograph of a fall marsh scene that started out more realistic, but ended up bright and a little abstract. Those are supposed to be trees in the background, but they look like hills. I just kept adding color, it really looks like southwestern colors. An experiment gone a little wild!
I actually got to paint and finish a piece over the last couple days. A feat, since I feel so scattered lately. I enjoyed using this monochromatic color scheme, painted from a black and white photo. I decided to keep it to these blue hues, although for my darks I use a mixture of pthalo green and alizarin crimson. (I was away in sun and flowers, New England is dark, damp and dismal!!) Ready to leave again! Hope some of you are enjoying spring!
