Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning – Completion

Posted by on 3/20/2012

Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning - Painting completedMoving all over the canvas…I adjust the finest details, adjust the shadows and more importantly, the warm sculpting glow of the morning sun on all the objects it touches.

I signed the piece and then mounted it on my desktop Best easel.  Then I always move the completed piece into my house from room to room to observe it in different light and time of day.  This allows me to make slight adjustments that I may have missed before signing off.

In the end, I decided not to put the lavendar in the foreground corner.  I was very pleased with the fencing and the plants would have been in the dark of the oak’s shadow leaving them to be nothing more than clutter.

This was a relatively quick piece with 45 hours.  Final value:  $2450
