The first steps - a new idea, a new painting!


I'm just beginning the first steps for a new landscape.  This one will be a little larger 16 x 12".  I used to work always in this size or larger... And now I'm returning to that desire, especially for landscapes. 
Tonight I toned a canvas and did value studies while working out a structure.  I'm still interested in doing a tonal  painting, but with colors of spring.  
Perhaps tomorrow or this weekend, I'll be able to start painting.... I hope!  It's a very busy season with the end of the semester, administering finals, helping students finish things up, and putting the classrooms away for the summer.  But, I plan to paint as much as I can!

Over and over I see proof that I have no patience and that I do not approach art in the same way as most artists do. I think this is a huge problem! But I sure do love seeing how you go about preparing for your next paintings, Helen. This will be another beauty!
