NEW LOVE

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.
ENJOY!!
