|"Scarlet Bush" 9" x 12" Oil on Oil Primed Linen|
Old but cared for homes, mountains as a backdrop, beautiful fall colors in the bushes. I could see this bush from several blocks away. These bushes were allover in this scarlet color. Even up the side of the hills.
I worked this painting a little differently then my normal process. Usually I'll block the big shapes with local color, then start working smaller shapes and adjusting values. With this one I started with a value study. Pretty much stuck with 3 values.
Then I started my normal process. A few changes, but not much. I'm going to play with the value study concept some more see if it helps me get to my values more quickly.
