I think I have a pretty good start to my latest painting. A couple of years ago I took the picture just off Cole Rd. south of Shelton, WA as the sun was rising over the autumn foliage. I thought it lent itself well to an impressionist style of painting.
The first image is the comparison between the photo and the initial underpainting.
This second is the basic style and moderate details
I want to add more color, contrast and texture. Stay tuned.
