Cedar Ridge Spring #2
This painting is another view from the same hike as the previous painting in an earlier post. Another beautiful area. For this one, I experimented with painting on a black gessoed canvas. I was very used to working on a toned surface when I was drawing in colored pencil, so this doesn't seem as difficult as might be imagined, however, I found that I really had to push the lights and use more paint to get good coverage. I like the feel of this painting and plan to experiment more with using a dark background.
