Today I am going to start a four day look at the same subject painting with a compositional change in each painting. I will be changing the point of view in each one. This will give you an idea of what the possibilities are using the same shapes. I hope you get a lot out of it. I am working on having really nice pieces of white paper working as the movement in the painting and I am keeping the white paper as clean as possible creating a really stark but easy to follow design. Try it with white paper and then use a tint of the shapes replacing the white. This will really change the finished painting.
Use cobalt blue and cerulean blue for the sky leaving some white paper for the appearance of clouds, immediately paint the trees into the damp sky using yellow with a blue wash on top.
Using really energetic brushwork, paint the foreground leaving the white paper, try to think of the edges along the white paper and pull the weeds and color across the white. This will slow the visual movement through the painting.
Paint in the shadows using a varied mixture of raw sienna, cobalt violet, cobalt blue and cadmium scarlet. Really play with the colors in order to stay away from a really flat shadow color.
Paint in some dark accents in the weeds with a rigger or scripts liner and with a round brush put in dark accents for window, doors, and under the eaves.
