I've been staring at this white 40" x 30" board for days. I finally just attacked it with enough line to commit to an idea. The colors in the landscape these days are ambers, browns, reds and yellows. Some green remains in the pine and cedar. But overall the pallette is warm and rich with clear cobalt skies. I want a landscape that is more particular and detailed than the recent panoramas of Minkcove; one that swallows the viewer. This will be a view from the daily walk I take through the Minot/Weld Conservancy. The palette will be warm and the focal point will pop with a lighter value. I'm also happy to be painting on board again.
