Stand of Pines in Yellow and Green Halftones 094
I was getting worried that my new viewer at DailyPainters may be getting the wrong impression about my work. The last 2 pieces and the first they have seen have been learning pieces for me, a new palette and subject matter I have yet to master. I have also been a bit lost in my painting efforts as of late, whihc I attribute to the introduction of the new palette and new techniques. I thought I would get back to business and do a few of my "Zen" pieces, pieces that make me feel comfortable.
I painted roses not that long ago and loved the colors I used, they were all halftone, so I took it upon myself to do the Stand of Pines series in that family of tones. This piece is the first installment. I am very happy with this piece, it has great color, a springy, sunshine feel, very warm. The textures are bold and I love the dabbles of other subtle tones within the piece.
