Not your mother’s landscape

In Emily’s workshop, the goal was 2 paintings a day – an exercise in the morning, a second painting (free choice) in the afternoon. Word is to think weird, paint straight. Through Emily’s workshop, I’m using her lusciously colorful palette, except the evening series (to come.) I hope I’m getting this right, details are fuzzy, on Monday we were to focus on something we would normally eliminate from the painting.

On Tuesday, focusing on value, we covered a canvas or panel with black paint and wiped away to form the image. I too frequently lose my darkest darks, so did this twice, liked the results and laid on transparent color the next day – for something completely different – for me. Sorry about the photos, not the best.
