Since I finished my last painting yesterday, I have to get busy on a new one. As you can see I have already gridded off the canvas, so I will have a square to paint every day.
The hardest part of this task is deciding just what I am going to paint. I had a couple of images in mind, one featured a pair of faraway headlights of a distant pickup, driving toward you down a snowy road on a gray winter’s day with a view of mountains being obscured by falling snow in the back ground.
After thinking about it, and realizing how lacking in color the image was and I figured I needed a whole lot more color this time of year. There is already enough grays and whites outside my door if I decided I needed it. Besides, those colors don’t do much to lift the semi-depressed state I find myself in after what has happened politically down in the US, I need something a bit more uplifting colorwise.
So I found an image with a lot of color, but I am not going to say what it is. You can follow my progress on the painting by looking at the “Current Work” section of my website: www.davidmarchant.ca.
