Colour and Composition 6 and 7 - Two Works in Progress

I pulled out these two paintings that I had started quite a while ago (see post on 29 January 2012) and decided it was about time I did something with them.

For the first one I thought that it looked as though a road winding its way through the hills would work.

Colour and Composition 6

I lightly sketched in the road and added a fence line on the one side as though it was part of a pasture and added a few trees to the top of the hill.

On the other side I put in a few trees and I may at a later time when I start painting it add another fence or do something entirely different.

Colour and Composition 7

For the second one it seemed as though it should have a stream running through the fields.

I lightly indicated the stream and added a few of the main trees. I will have to decide if I wish to turn this piece into a pasture or a forest scene.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date once they have been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork. I hope you will return often.
