I took another shot at this composition, but intended to take the high-key concept further, but failed really. I like the way the painting came out, just felt I could have made it ever more “high key”. I’m going to continue to work on this. I painted a “full key” painting from a reference photo taken at Lake Tahoe this past summer. As soon as it dries, I’ll can it and post, because I think it really illustrates the dramatic difference between low and full-key painting.
