Orange Ya Glad, Oil on Linen, 12x16
This time of year I should be painting snow scenes, but alas we have very little of that. There is another painting underneath this one of the exact same subject but mostly in beige and grey. It was painted in the late afternoon just as the clouds rolled in and grayed out any lighting effect worth painting.  As we were cleaning up, the setting sun popped out again giving everything a warm glow. I put a couple of color notes on the painting  and packed it away. The next day, I looked at the painting and the only thing I liked were the color notes, so I redid the painting on top of the grey and beige one incorporating the sunset colors throughout.
