I'm working on a painting of a farm on Cape Ann this summer. I photographed the view I like and frankenteined the design I want in Photoshop. I plan to give lots of play to the reflections on the surface of the pond — there are just so many wonderful mauves in there.
Above is my initial lay-in painted on location. I'm just getting a feel for big areas of value and color and firming up the overall design here.
My second pass, this time in my studio. Firming up the major players.
My third session with the canvas is again in-studio. Normally I move all around the canvas, but this time I am bringing the house and the background line of trees along first because they will all be reflected by the pond. I hope my next session is on location again. I think it's time. Later. —SAS
