I've finished 3 paintings so far, (or I think I have, never quite know about that!) and I'm presently working on the fourth. And as it is my habit to take photos of my progress, I thought it might be fun to post some of them with a few descriptions of what I'm thinking about as this latest painting develops. So here are the three completed paintings (above), and (below) a few images of my current painting which I will continue to update as I go along.
Tree in the Marsh, day 1First thing I did was block in the basic forms, paying attention to the dynamics of the composition and the overall design. In this beginning stage I have lots of freedom to move things around. The paint is thin, and I can use my turpentine like an eraser.
