Taking my time at Taylor Bray farm, Cape Cod – Britt

Taylor-Bray Farm October 2014

Sooo, as I attempted to explain in my previous posts, I am working on a specific technique that I have either been reading about or someone has explained to me — last time I was concentrating on not just hurrying and almost panicking to get paint on the canvas and tried to block in the darks and the lights that I saw.  This day we were painting at the Taylor Bray Farm and I wanted to  add one more layer to my study.

 

That layer is to think about where the light source is, where it is coming from, and what color is it.

I really don’t get yet how to determine the color of the light — I think I am getting there, but this study is about continuing to take my time to block out the color AND to think carefully about the light.
