I took a break from the large Aspen painting. yesterday I added some pallet knife work to the trees and it seemed to help, but for now I need to set it aside and look at it later.
I went back into this 40x40 and added some cross walks in the lower part. With the horizontal lines there your eye doesn't race down the road, it stops to linger a bit, kind of like a speed bump!
If you remember I did a smaller version of this subject matter a while back, a 16x12 and thought it would make a nice larger painting. So this morning I block-in this 30x30 and tried to keep the light in more of a yellow hue. I'll try to shoot for that end of day feeling.
