Spain!!

UncategorizedBrooke O'Connell2 Comments

Got back to some oil painting this afternoon which was great.  I have been doing lots of little watercolour paintings lately, and so i was happy to get back into the oils.  This new one is of a picture I took while riding the train from Madrid to Barcelona.  The countryside was beautiful and full of colour.  One of my favorite things in Spain was the light.  It reminded me of the warm light I first experienced while traveling in Arizona.  This is my second attempt at using black as the base colour.  I am really liking using this method -as  it seems to make the colours stand out.
