Late Afternoon

Late Afternoon
9"x12" oil on panel

Decided I wanted to focus on my brushwork with this one, specifically, on putting it down and leaving it alone! It's a challenge for sure with such a composition as this, where the foreground gets rather complicated. I started with by blocking in the darkest areas (the trees) and keying in the value of the sky in the background, then I worked my way down, dark to light. All in all, I'm quite pleased with how my Day #20 painting turned out! Two thirds of the way into this Daily Painting Challenge and I'm really starting to feel like I'm on a roll!
