Here is how I got to my final project for the week.
|Notans from my reference photos- a warm-up|
|Value study of the photo for class|
|I did end up tracing the crocuses and transferring that onto my wc paper.|
|My first wash layered|
|while painting, I like to paint a second one, both were done at the same time, when one was drying I would paint the other.|
I am still working on painting 100 trees by the end of the year, I have about 50 done so far. Here are some that I have enjoyed looking at over the past week.
I call them Tree Studies, and they are warm-ups. These also are what I called my Scatter Sunshine pieces, I paint them with no real purpose except to paint to feel joy and to get me into the right mindset. Once I am done with them I make them into cards, or a little note and give it to someone to brighten their day. So that is what my warm-ups are all about these days!
