Big Sky Farm

Big sky farm

This is a watercolor on gessoed illustration board. 14 by 12 inches $50.00 $5.50 for shipping

Its very cold here and I spent most of the day inside.

I have been doing some planning for a commissioned piece... and I tried to get some ideas for the composition. I usually just do some pencil sketches for the placement of the focal point and for the structure of the painting. I usually try to think of what I'll do for the underpainting just so I can get started because as I paint my intuition will kick in the rest will come.

I like to think about them as a cruciform or a triangle or steel yard composition to get started.. so I start with a logical idea but as I go along, I allow the piece to tell me what to paint.
