Now that we’re done with the Chattanooga work, it’s time to get into some new subjects. This painting is from my October class with Barbara Jaenicke and features an image of trees in the fall.
I don’t think I’ve ever tried to paint fall colors or leaves, so it was a little challenging. Thankfully, Barbara guided us through the process and helped shape how it all came together.
It was a lot of fun to dig into the color mixing and especially the background trees. The muted purples and greens were interesting to mix and it was fascinating to see how they reacted with the brighter foreground colors.
Note: This painting was done as part of a class I take with Barbara Jaenicke. The photo, composition and direction on this piece was from Barbara as a part of the class.
