My goal with this painting is to paint fast and loose...and I am satisfied with this start. I will need to fill in some detail . But right now the paint is too wet.
After laying in the darkest values (over a sanded substrate...that frustrating painting from a few days ago is hidden...not even a pentimento now)I painted in the vermilion light on the hills and some of the reflective light on the grasses under the juniper. When the paint is a little drier I will work on some of the juniper branches and a little more detail on the grasses, but my goal remains being loose and suggestive. We will see.
