Wing Dancing Painting Stage #10


A close up detail of pointillism painted on the foreground grasses.  You can see many, many layers of color at this stage.  I’m concentrating on making the foreground beautiful close-up as well as from the distance.  A large variety of values and hues have been added as dots to form the grass.


The above photo shows how the grass appears from a distance,I’m beginning to achieve the look I’ve been seeking.  I need to step back and evaluate the background especially the upper third of the painting.  It looks a little weak to me.  This 48″ x 60″ canvas is quite a challenge, and is taking a huge number of dots, as well as a lot of time.  Fun, though.
