|"Conway Lutheran Church" 12x12 plein air, oil on panel $525|
There was a perfect spot for me to pull off the road and set up on the dike for a good view of the church. In this picture you see my underpainting to sketch in the composition and set value transitions.
In this pic I am filling in the color. Starting with the darkest values of the roof and shadow areas and along the entire horizon line. Then I come in with the lightest sky values and paint around the darks paying close attention to my edges and keeping the color clean. After that I will move down the painting , modeling the grasses and using the drive into the parking lot as a lead into the painting.
