The New Day (under painting)
This is a monochromatic under painting of a boat I'm currently calling, "The New Day"...unless I change my mind and call it something else. I'm thinking of painting this almost entirely in earth warm colors like Andrew Wyeths pallet. It's almost there but if you look at Wyeths work, you'll notice there are plenty of cools and blues beneath the surface to give it a balance...whatever works really but I'm feeling a strong pull towards a minimal pallet statement here. The piece is sort of dictating that as it evolves, we'll see where it goes.
