Session #043, Work #031

First landscape painting in over 5 years! This is to make up for my missed painting on the 6th due to a business trip.

This is my first landscape in over 5 years. I had forgotten about all the possible distractions and especially the mass of leaves and trees that make it hard to determine any shapes at all.  

I felt majorly rushed on this painting, I only spent an hour on it but by the time I was finished the shadows had move so far that I could only make up what I thought the values would look like. And because I was rushed the drawing and values are pretty far off.    




My hierarchy of painting importance

  1. Drawing
  2. Value
  3. Edges
  4. Composition
  5. Color



How can I improve the drawing

I was so rushed on this painting I understand that the drawing is way off. I’m going to have to start painting landscapes earlier in the day when the sun is high and more stable.
