Madrona Tree WIP 4/30/07



I am able to work on this Madrona Tree painting today so will include another work in progress entry here. I have done the underpainting of the leafy background and will next proceed to darkening that area, hopefully with the intent of darkening that more to make the peeling tree branches "pop" more and remain the center of interest for this painting. More to follow.

Hi there, I came across your blog today and had to leave you a comment. Your work is beautiful. I am really liking the colors you're developing in your Madrona Tree painting.

Christeen,

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind thoughts! Regarding the Madrona tree, I am hoping at this point that I have not ruined the whole thing by working poorly on the background! I keep telling myself that all paintings go through an awkward teenage phase but this one may be stuck in that phase until it gets thrown away. We'll see.

Thanks again,
Susan
