Flatbed- 6x8- oil on c.b.


I really liked the way the grass was glowing and everything else was cool and in shadow. only the sky, the rim of the hood, grass and flatbed were in the light.

this is another case where something has to be dominant in the composition, whether it be a color, a shape, or as in this case, the shadow shapes are dominant over the light shapes. this means the midtones dominate. there are very few light shapes and very few really dark shapes. this gives the piece more strength than if it was equal amounts of both.

thanks to everybody who's emailing me and telling me they like the blog. the blog is recieving over 100 visits a week. thats crazy! thanks y'all!
