Fall In

I treated the shadows in this one a little differently...and I like it. Here's some of the music I painted to today. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'music' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)

Very nice, Bren! I think the white stone in there looks great, kind of like a little surprise. I do like the way you handled the shadows and the peachy background looks great.

I think the shadow factor is better on this one, as well. In "Line by Line", the shadow color is more akin to what the shadow would look like if it were falling on the actual pebbles. In the second one, there is more peach, but the contrast is not quite there. On this one, though, you actually believe the shadow is on the peachy surface. The contrast is good. There is enough pebble color in the shadows, but you can still "see" that it is obviously a cast shadow on the peach surface. I appreciate getting to see all three paintings together. Looking into your progress is a treat.
