So, I am working BIG. this is the progress on a painting I have waited for about six months to work out. It’s only the first of what will likely be more paintings inspired from the Redwoods. “Morning Woods” is 48″ tall by 38″ wide painting featuring the Giant Sequoia. The big trunk on the left was still a bit too dominate so I floated whispy greens in at the top. The green moss-y-ness at the at the foot of the trunk helps pull it all together with the green of the background. The many colors in the trunk also give the entire painting a broad range of interesting color that works well with the limited greens and other cools that inhabit the painting.
