WORK IN PROGRESS: FALL WOODS, FOUR SEASONS QUAD-TYCK
After drawing in the whole composition along with preliminary colorwork, I'm working up close and personal with a tiny brush on Fall Woods, the third unit in my four part painting. Tiny brushes are not me--nor is working on a small section at a time without considering the whole. But intense details overlapping is what is required to get this unit to sit right with the other Spring and Summer. So be it. Square inch by square inch I plod along. The nice part is the work is mesmerizing--tranquilizing. I find I'm not thinking at all. I'm in the trees letting my intuition guide me as I paint branch over branch,color over color. It's a very enjoyable state of being.
There are four hundred square inches in Fall Woods. These detail photos show just a few. My concentration was on the upper right side of the painting.
