Winter Morning | Welcome!

Harmony Cardenas

Past January, I visited my friends’ ranch in Ingram and painted the Plein air (beneath still left.) The early morning was overcast and misty, but as the sunlight peeped over the hills, the sky took on a gentle pink cast. Soon after I returned to my studio I decided to paint 2 large paintings from the a person Plein air and my memories of the land. The Plein air showed a strong horizontal composition, but when painting it greater, I encountered heaps of challenges that had been not obvious in a small structure. The line of trees in the foreground stopped your eye from getting into the house guiding, so first I opened the “wall of inexperienced” with trees that had dropped their leaves. Next, the street driving the opening sets up a curved line to bring your eye again to the blue hills at the rear of, which picked up the strains primary you by the sky. Eyes have a tendency to comply with the light, so it truly is generally a superior solution to make the lightest space the upper right 3rd of the portray. In the Western tradition, we read through from remaining to appropriate so putting the strongest light-weight on the suitable even more reinforces that tendency. Transferring the eye around your painting involves that you evolve from your original system and that is a good factor. The 2nd portray (under correct) is another remedy to the exact riddle. Painting is just problem-fixing. It really is like a never ever-ending puzzle that hardly ever leaves me bored.
