Taking Down the Show at the Douro-Dummer Library Art Gallery

Today was a very busy day with starting the morning off by going to Fenelon Falls for a seminar on business plans and marketing. It was interesting and very informative with plenty of new ideas that I can put to good use.

From there it was off to Douro-Dummer Township to take down the Countryside Art Group show at the Library Art Gallery.

Finally I was back home and wanted to do a little work on a painting and I chose this one (see post on 20 January 2015).

Using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I started first by painting the island.

Then I started on the tree trunks and branches in the foreground and darkening the mixture started to add in the pine needles.

Painting in the negative I created the rocky base against the water below the tree trunks. I added growies above the rocks and around the base of the trees.

Lastly I put in the reflections in the water below the rocks. I will post this painting at a later date once it is completed.
