|After doing a line drawing of my Aspen Tree, the background |
was painted in gradations of blue. Shadow areas were painted in purple, and I experimented with color.
|The lower right leaves were defined by color. I decided that|
because the sapling was painted in spring greens, the cycle
would be more complete by making this a fall tree.
|Leaves were developed further, and some definition added.|
|The leaves are now filled in, but the composition looks too |
chaotic, with very little massing of color.
|More orange and yellow-green is added to the upper left, |
and the lower left is darkened.
|I continued to add orange to warm up the bottom of the |
painting, and to visually connect it to the top.
