If the idea of this exercise is the study of color – perhaps I should try to think like an impressionist. The sun was out, but the wind was HOWLING! Not enough layers. Missing my Idaho hot tub – but if I were there, I suppose this may have been a snow scene. If I were to critique myself here, not being an ‘impressionist” painter, I would say that my shapes on the right-hand tree could be more interesting, and the color scheme on the right -more decisive. I like what was happening on the left and should have gone back to the tree on the right and mimicked some of the choices – but it was cold and I couldn’t last another moment. In reality, the tree on the left was nearly dead, and the one on the right was living, but for the purposes of good picture making, it may have been better to keep them more similar… off to find heat.
