november virtual sketch date

(7x12)

In like the cool branches in the upper right, but always struggle with dappled shadows! I think I may crop it:



*****
In-progress photos: I have to remember to photograph paintings in-progress more often; looking at these makes at least part of me wish I had stopped after the first go-round.

This is stunning, Laura - the branches tower overhead, and I love your colours and patterns in those dappled shadows.

wonderful color! It's gorgeous!

Stacy said...

I like the rich, bold blue in your sky and how you carried it down into your background. And I think your purple dappled shadows are very well done.

Jan Pope said...

Looks good to me. I like the purple shadows. A really nice approach to this subject.

Jeanette said...

This is fabulous Laura! I love the cool colours, just gorgeous.

Françoise said...

No,no,no cropping! It's lovely as is.
I love and envy your talent.

All the colors are wonderful - a nice interpretation! I do like the first photo though - simple trees and blue background. It would be so great if we had an "undo" button, wouldn't it? But that is what makes it art, I think - taking the chance that can't be undone.

I love your colours and your dappled shade! Well done!

Sherry said...

Oh my, these colors are so so beautiful! This interpretation of the tree is very joyous indeed.

Ruth said...

Scrumptious!! These are some of the most luscious colors I've seen, in a painting or elsewhere. Yum!!

Gail said...

Love the colors Laura! I don't think you should crop it. The color shift in the right corner balances the piece.

Thanks for the view.

Have to echo all that's been said: the colours are plain gorgeous!

Teresa said...

It's beautiful... a feast of colors!

Leslie said...

It was most interesting to see the masking in the work in progress photos. I like to see all the 'tricks' and techniques used to arrive at a result.
And a gorgeous result. Fabulous color!

GORGEOUS colors! I love the loose and wet look to this -- very alive.

Jo Castillo said...

I love the bright colors and gesture in this.

Carol Feldman said...

It is beautiful, the painting, the drawing, the movement - it is just wonderful.

Jenni said...

Love these. Wonderful capturing of the shadows and play of light.
