If you really want to learn about values, try painting in the late evening. What a challenge. Every thing is dark yet, you want to show some color and light direction. I will not post many evening paintings, why? Don't like to stay up too late. I'm a happy morning person. Speaking of happy, I hope the New Year brings you much happiness and good health.


  1. This has a real sense of drama with your low key. I love the rust color providing a neat horizontal line against the strong verticals of the trees.
    Happiness and good health are key ingredients so I thank you for the wishes.

  2. I like the strong abstract sense of this. Keep up the good work.

  3. I'm starting off the year with good comments from two of my favorite artists. Thank you Julie and Darrell. It will help me keep those brushes wet!
