A Painting A Day

Topics: daily painting, day, oil sketch,

I have started to paint an oil picture (almost) every day. This should improve my use of colour and composition, and it is rewarding to create something on a daily basis. Painting whatever I can see from our flat also teaches me how to deal with the fleeting effects of light, as I intend to start painting en plein air soon.

To practise mixing greens, I painted the tree in Netherwood Street, visible from our flat. I have tried to pay attention to the shadow and light areas and the temperature of the different planes of the foliage. The ever changing light was a further challenge to deal with.
