The work is done. A painting for the day. Successful learning, if not successful looking. The scan is not true to life. There is a playful interaction between the butterscotch and the yellow, only slightly visible here. The blues are deeper indigo, and the greens somewhat brighter.
I love the shape of the head, the way the berry pooled. That was laid down first and formed the shape of the center. (Yellow, butterscotch then berry, green and indigo.) I love the texture in the center.
Partly cloudy is my favorite kind of day. Changes the colors on the mountains minute by minute. Click on the images for a closer look.
Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days,
days in whose light everything seems equally divine,
opening a thousand windows to show us God.
