Day 58 – En Provence

A lot of egregious errors I thought and maybe a repaint when I finished but I really like this the more I stare at it.Things that bothered me yesterday no longer do. I think it has a great glow about it. I really love the tree. Who cares if I messed up the hard fought for dappled tree shadow on the right of the tree by misting it too much and it ran everywhere. 😫 and the roof line was not quite right. I no longer care and like it a lot. How would we take this no account ho hum picture and make a good painting out of it?! Hmmm.

The value sketch.

First wash.

Background bushes and roof on.

Tree’s done. Goodness almost done. What?! Speed Painting.

Adding details and a few darks.

And here’s A tree in Provence Done. Don’t you want to buy it?!

Tomorrows paint along with Vlad. You should join us!! You will be glad you did.

Beautiful day yesterday.

Margaret who thought she had posted this yesterday. Hmm. Xoxoxox

    I love it, too, Margaret. And you did post that river photo yesterday–I am almost certain, because I wanted to comment and refrained because I have commented a number of times on your view, I love it. It is a treat anytime I see it.

      Thanks Madeline. Always love your input. You have a terrific eye. Really hated how I screwed it up when I was done but now I don’t see it so much. A matter of upclose and distance I think. Yeah a great view.

      You know the thing about the river is it changes very little from day to day. Just the sky. And then the seasons. And that’s it. No flowers nothing to look at but same old river and trees.
