DAY 1 Sunny Days.
When thinking about what to paint to represent SUNNY DAYS my mind went to how the sun looks shining through the leaves of the trees. One of my earliest memories is from when I was supposed to be taking a nap. I think I was about 2 years old. I was supposed to be napping but instead I was looking out the window at how the sun looked shining through the leaves of the elm tree outside my bedroom window.
This is my first try I liked the color and I like the way the water spots look, but I really didn't like how the branches were too heavy.
Second try I liked the color but there wasn't much contrast (highlight and shadows) It felt too flat.
I liked this next one but it too felt to flat and I wasn't thrilled with the colors.
I think this is my 2nd favorite. There were more shadows but I didn't think you could "see" the sunlight.
This one was my favorite. You can tell it was done by a beginner, but hey at least I'm beginning. I tried to leave more white space. That was really hard. I think I would still like more contrast and I think I would add some deeper richer colors. Especially for the shadows.
