A year ago? I labored over Island Road off and on for weeks, fussing and fussing and fussing with it.
Today? I was all derring-do.
Had an idea, dove in. 1-2-3.
I spread, scraped, and smoothed a bunch of fall colors till they covered a sheet of canvas paper.
Roughed in a sketch on top of the colors.
Mixed up some sky with titanium white, ultramarine blue, and dioxazine purple.
Carved a maple tree out of negative space.
Sat outdoors in the sun to add touches with oil pastels.
Two hours, maybe? And fun!
