I exaggerated the golds and the reds for this one to give the feel of a glowing morning, which it was.
This was my daughters first full day of Kindergarten.
For this one, I went right from the dry under painting and completed the painting in a little over four hours.
I had been waiting to do the sky after the second layer had dried, but I wanted to get it done and also wanted to see if I could get the lighter colors to not only sit over any wet paint but also mingle a bit with the leaves to give more depth.
I think that I was successful.
This is a sweet subject and it is a keeper.
