Here’s another study of “Lands End” (Golden Hour) I started in my previous post.  I created a video of the process, by stringing together still photographs of various stages of the painting.  I like this composition.  The large tree reflects the strength and gracefulness of the Monterey Cypress, but I’m not sure about my darks…they may be too dark.  I may try another study today where I play with that a bit.  Painting dark darks provides nice contrast with light (which I clearly needed here), but it can also make the painting too “heavy”.
