Marsh, Jekyll Island 092
Thought I would give the new palette another whirl today. Practice, practice, practice! I am still not real happy with the trees, but the overall mood and the harmonies of the piece are nice... I am going to try my old palette tomorrow with the same reference and see if I can get what I am looking for. This palette is very hard to get dark, I was warned of the before hand, but there is a great deal I have to learn about painting marshes. These are by far the best I have done.
As of today, I have been accepted to dailypainters.com, an online community of daily painters from around the country plus a few. I found their site after Millie Gosch suggest I give it a whirl. After painting almost daily for 6 months now, I have been accepted to their community. I am honred. Some of the best in the business are there. I applied almost a mothe after I started daily painting, whihc was very premature, they suggested keeping a blog for almost a year. I was afraid they had passed me over, so much to my surprise, they sant an email e,ail confirmation tonight. So, welcome to those of you who founf me through dailypainters!
