Walkies View I
Here is an example of how I work to develop a painting. Many times, I will only do a value sketch and composition drawing before diving right in to a finished piece. Sometimes, I like to do a study to work out the composition and colors ahead of time. Here is the result of doing a color study.
I like how the shadows from the trees fan out to create interesting patterns in the fallen leaves. Notice how the shadow edges become softer and more diffuse as they lengthen.
