"Woods in Fog" Oil Painting
I like the gradation of colors you can find in a mist or fog. This was a good study in darkening the same color of green as it came forward. I also have a hard time leaving things loose. I like the background trees as I really tried to let them go into the white instead of sharpening them against the light.
What I'm trying to get at really is a feeling. The feeling of being in a wet fog with the trees looming all around and the magical feel of it all around you.
My palette was: Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White, Olive Green, Burnt Umber and Paynes Grey.
