Quite a lot to report.
I have been busy painting this week and I finished up the Huleh Valley picture as you can see on the right. I like it a lot. It has a lot of depth and that misty distance came out fantastically. My only reservations may be in the row of trees at the front which I spent quite a while on and revising. I think I got them right in the end.
The predominant color in the picture is cadmium yellow, with trees mainly in olive green, some phthalo blue and a bit of yellow ochre here and there.
After getting this one out, I turned my attentions back to the pool that I had been wrestling with a few weeks back.
After getting some of my self confidence back, I decided to give this another go and so far so good. I’ll see if I can get some more time on this during the coming week though I will be going to bed early in order to get up for Selihot (penitence prayers) all week which start at something like 6:00 every morning (BTW, that’s only half and hour earlier than I would get up anyway).
