|Fall Colors, Vashon Town|
Today It's dark and rainy, so I'm working in my studio. I'm using the photo I took as reference, but I'm not trying to duplicate the photo.
|Masking over the areas where the darkest meets the light areas|
|Almost finished! Just need to add details|
The tree is painted in, the masking tape removed.
It is important to wait for the paint to dry after each step. The darkest shadows were added after the green of the fir dried. When all that is dry I can add a little color to the lamp post and tree trunk and finish the bank building.
Now the light is gone--darn these winter days! I'll finish this another day.
