Check out my last post for full details on how this series started.
The last draft of this painting was this one.

The next step was to paint the landscape again using the colors from this yarn:
I used a lot of French ultramarine blue and dioxazene violet. I love those colors!

There are a lot of things I like about this painting, but I wanted to try one more time to see what would happen if I softened the darks a bit, added more orange and tried out a couple of other different things.
Of the four, which one do you like best?
I will be doing more work like this. It was a lot of fun to tweak a landscape to the colors I've been dyeing with for the last 20 years.
This series will be on display and for sale at The Vault at Gallery Mortgage from August 4 - September 29, 2017. Bloomington, Indiana.
