I worked on a David Smith demo today. This is my first attempt. I'm going to try again tomorrow. There are some changes I'll make. The yellow, red and blue part of the sky needs to be bigger and not quite so circular. I need to work on the colors and shapes of the trees and extend the middle trees up more on the right side. There is too much space between the top of the yellow mountain and the trees. I'm going to bring in more purple in the distant mountains. I do think I got the misty effect. That makes me happy. I have no pride, so I'm posting the picture because I'm really excited and I know you guys will have mercy on me and won't judge David's teaching skills by my painting:) This is on a 1/4 sheet of Arches cold press.
