26/1: TWO NEW PAINTINGS. Winter woodlands

Today I made good use of the colour charts I’d made a couple of weeks ago. (see post for 12/1)

I’d specifically created the range of colours I needed for the painting I had in mind.  Having written which paints I had used to create certain colours I wanted made the task of guessing any other shades twice as easy

NB: These are just studies, the colder looking one is in progress. Both have some really good sections which work really well. The ‘greener’ version hasn’t really got the depth that the other painting has and is a bit overworked. Not happy about the branch across the bottom which prevents you entering the picture. I’m excited about these two. More next week…….
