Week 11. The start of new painting!

This week i started a new painting.  I am really into dramatic skies at the moment!  The dark hues against the bright vivid colours are really exciting!  I scumbled in the sky with a glaze and then put the horizon and trees in with a brush.  Interestingly i painted the trees in roughly as i will then be painting in the negative space around them later.  This will allow me to achieve more refined, finer branches rather than trying to paint them in with a tiny brush!  So i will have to think backwards for that one, i can't wait!  Unfortunately  i will have to wait though as it was the final week of my creative oil painting course this week but i have enjoyed it that much, i have signed up for next term!

The scene is starting to take shape
