The first day of springPosted: March 20, 2013
Yesterday I had so much fun doing a negative painting with no pencil lines that I repeated the exercise today. Just turned the branches upside down. Painting the spaces between things requires patient observation and a good amount of wash on the brush. I started in the middle of the sheet and did a light wash of the parts of the fence that I could see between the branches. Then I added the dark bits of evergreen under the snow. By that time the fence was dry so I added the darker parts of the fence. The last step was the lacework of branches that tied it all together.
