Work in Progress


I'm revisiting a scene I did a while back, but just changing some small details here and there.




You may recognise this Pathway Across The Moor - this is the early stage, although I am happy at the moment with the sky. So that may well stay as it is.  I changed brushes and used a Filbert, that really made a difference and helped me get the rounded clouds.







Basically I've put down shapes and colours.  I'll gradually work on the distance...knowing I need to 'send it back' ...which, of course, calls for some blue.

 It definitely helps to leave it for a few days
then go back and look at it with fresh eyes

definitely

Work in Progress!

  6. Looking good. I am actually doing the same thing with a painting I have been working. I think its close to done but I am letting it set a day or so to study it. I need to tweak something and looking at it tells me what I need to do. They sometimes go another way then we think in our heads tho. but that's the fun of painting ..its like reading a good mystery book. :)

    1. Thanks Cris - I think the next time I work on this I'll get considerably further with it than I have in the last week or so...we have family staying and hence I'm on a slow phase, which I don't mind as it gives me time to 'look' at it.

  11. Wow those puddles definitely changed the mood and atmosphere of the painting. Beautiful work so far. Interesting to read you use a filbert. I don't use mine very often but then I love my rounds for watercolour. Good Luck with the rest. Not that you need it. :-)

    1. Hi Laura, I thought the placement of the puddles gave this atmosphere too, sort of made sense of the perspective somehow. Hopefully I can keep this going :)
