Day 14: Delta Trees in Progress

"Delta Trees" demo painting in progress, acrylic on canvas 12" x 12"

I started this painting to use in an acrylic demonstration for the Rossmoor Art Association in Walnut Creek.  I've been playing with this theme a lot lately and really enjoying it.  In this one I decided to limit my palette to three colors -- Quinacridone Crimson, Dioxizine Purple and Raw Sienna -- to try for a glowing, warm color harmony and some rich semi-neutrals.  Below is how it looked before I added the washes of color.  I like to think of this stage as the bones of the painting.  Will post the final version as soon as I complete it.
