time for thumbnails
My new "out-of-school status" has afforded me more time to get back to things I really enjoy doing. This includes painting with acrylics. I am currently working on a piece that is loosely based on images from my friend Steve's home in North Dakota. The terrain is vast, beautiful and empty.
These are some thumbnail sketches I made in my sketchbook in order to think about composition and color. I have a feeling the finished piece is going to turn out quite differently, but nevertheless have found this step helpful. I'll post more as the painting develops.
