Amazing to think that this is the next to the last post of the challenge -- so much time devoted to painting and so many small works finished. It has been a joyfully successful way to spend the month.
Pleased with the painting posted on Day 27, I took the opportunity to paint another work using negative painting for the back woods. Taking my cue from the colors in the underpainting I added lights to create the branches and then some cooler colors to further push back the space.
The front trees were again painted in cool blue and purple washes that did not completely cover the underpainting. This created the suggestion of textures as well as lights and shadows on the trunks.
