Whittlesey - In Progress Continued

The second stage of the painting started with the land, trying to keep a sunny feel and plenty of contrast. I decided to leave it here and let it dry, planning to go in with a couple of glazes later to really make those greens zing with sunshine.

The notes in my sketchbook reminded me how lucky I felt to have found such a spot on the way home, how it gave me a few moments of peace in a busy day and how re-charged I felt when I left. I wanted the painting to reflect that.

The sky was then worked, allowing those warm hues to show through here and there.

More soon...
