Start With Red

Summer Scrub
Another one of the "start with red" series (I never know they are really a series until after.......but it makes sense that they will have the same feel when I paint them at the same time) Again with the big brush and using it really dry along the middle ground to create the feeling of shrub and brush and scrub. Letting it sit and then returning with the simple pale blue-white sky. Busy foreground means a quiet sky for balance. Complicated sky means simple foreground. Sometimes its really that simple.
I changed my header picture to a photo I "stitched" together from a recent sunrise. Inspiration for future paintings........
