Tonight I wanted to paint something different.
I dug out some old quick loose sketches I had done in watercolor
while on a painting trip up in Taos two years ago.
The initial sketch was just a loose burnt sienna so I had to improvise
when I painted, thinking about what the colors might have been.
I was there in the fall so the trees are obviously turning,
the fields might be corn fields that have already been harvested,
and I interspersed complementary colors side by side;
reds next to greens, yellow next to lavender, etc.
This is the valley below the road to Taos Ski Valley,
just as you pass the small village of Arroyo Seco.
Dee - Another beautiful painting! Thank you so much for your encouaging words...I plan on posting the new one tonight.ReplyDelete
