Day #19, January 2015 - 30/30 Challenge, Peaceful Morning

This challenge is a good time for experimenting with color choices, techniques and paint application. Today I toned four canvas panels with an abstract pattern of orange, red and grey acrylic, keeping in mind the rules of aerial perspective. Then I chose one and studied the abstraction, trying to see a painting hidden there.

My choice for today

 As I studied the shapes I could see a coastal scene that reminded me of a cove in Bristol, Maine. I painted the scene from memory which isn't always a good idea. Tomorrow I will take another panel and try to match it to a photograph from my reference library. It may work well, and then again, who knows.  But it is fun and I am learning a lot.
