While your painting and if you can’t paint outside. Great idea is to paint with the light , it will guild you on your placement of shadows.
At a certain time of the day , the light comes in my living room and it helps me guide the shadows in this winter scene , which is so much fun.
Here I’m using a good canvas a lot of white gesso and a bit of watercolor and soluble pencils. I use a Windor& Newton spray matte varnish to ensure integrity of paint, textures sand color. I work from there, I’ll add acrylic paint on top or strips of music sheets for birch trees, which is another delightful technique using a decoupage which is very strong and matte finish , using Pod Podge
Still working on this one, I’m trying to slow down the process and concentrate on glazing and light. Such fun
Would love to see this show
Thanks Jo Grant for the tip

Thank you Brainpickin !
“And how full of sorrow and bewilderment we are for what we have lost, and are losing; and how gently, we might one day surrender to the sense that now we are here to serve the Earth, and the Earth’s future…our future in the fullest sense.”
