the colour study is based on a photo of a poplar tree trunk.
And for my troublesome piece, I’ve added a bit of dark, almost black, green. It’s a definite improvement but I’m still not satisfied. Maybe tomorrow I’ll figure out what to do.
Oh and today I took photos of all (except one that I forgot was on the wall) of the colour studies. Outdoors, on a tripod, bracketed and in the sunshine. I had my winter coat on but unzipped, so beautiful in the sunshine, -10 in the morning but about freezing in the afternoon.
