The Drama Returns!

I was so glad to get back to art class this week, i had really missed it!  It was good to see some old friends as well as new, and to get back to my dramatic landscape painting.  I have had a lot of lovely comments about this painting even though it's not finished so i was eager to get on with it!  The row of trees were roughly painted in before Christmas so this week i concentrated on painting the negative space around them in order to refine the branches.  I have also intensified the colour for added drama.

The drama unfolds 
This detail shows how rather than painting the branches in with a fine brush, painting the negative space around them is just as effective and also adds more life to the painting.
