Picture a Day #81 – Spring Sunshine

Welcome to spring! If you are in my neck of the woods, yesterday was the Vernal Equinox, the first official day of spring, and there was no sign of the sun. So I decided to create my own sunshine, at least on paper. Still no sign of sun today, so here goes!

Yellow has never been a  favorite color of mine. But a pale, buttery yellow can be lovely. It is a starting point for me, and leads to other fabulous shades. If you have been watching both of my blogs you will notice the presence of yellow. I guess I’ve been anxious for the sunshine lately!

I began this painting with a Cadmium Yellow graded wash. Then I added layers of Ultramarine.

I had in mind to make this a sunrise landscape. I was thinking hills with trees. My husband saw sand dunes. We’ll see how it evolves…
