Here are a couple of in-progress shots of the painting I am working on at the moment. It is a top down view of a sea shell collection arranged in a random pile. I like the warmth of the shells' colors recalling sand, sea, and sun.
Some paintings I work from light to dark, or from background to foreground, or from sky to ground, or even all over the place at once. This is one of those paintings that is going together like a puzzle, a piece at a time.
Today greeted us with strong winds blasting bitter cold and snow falling and then blowing up and around in near white out conditions at times. A very good day to be in, at my drawing table, painting warmth.
