A work-in-progress

Trees on the Marshes of Glynn

This is a work in progress. It’s oil on board, 12″ x 24″. I’ve got a long way to go yet. The chroma on the marshes is way too high; I’m looking for dramatic lighting but I don’t want my viewers’ corneas to get burned out. Also, I do not want to detract from the tree in the foreground. The painting is about the tree more than the setting.

    Wonderful! Has the feel of a Japonese print. I like the chroma of the marsh and the overall color scheme. Please don’t fool with it until you have looked at it for a while. You’re moving on!

    I think it’s great too. Colour balance reminds me of Gaugin. Leave it!

    Thanks for the comments, guys. I’ve sat with it for a couple of days, and I think you’re right. I’ll leave it.
