Another entry into this month's Virtual Paintout location of Slovenia.

Some progress shots:

Working on a yello-ochreish ground. I sketched the scene with magenta, and here I'm putting in the shadowed areas with permanent violet.

The underpainting for the sunlit areas.

I decided to do the sky first. I usually save it for last, but I'm rethinking that approach. The sky colors the entire scene so it's a key element in determining all the other colors. I also did the road, which is reflecting a lot of the sky.

Now the brightest areas, especially the corner of the house where the sun is hitting.

The far trees, the houses in the middle distance, some more detail here and there. Almost done.

In the midst of this cold winter, we've had a few lovely weekend days. I painted this at Falls Lake State Recreation Area at the end of February. It's too early for much greenery, but the pines are always beautiful. It was wonderful to be outside in the sun!
