We painted the iconic view from the Portland Women's Forum today. Here is what everyone had to say during the Noon discussion:
Ken: I compressed the hills to make a better design. I had Gamblin red and also Prussian blue on my palette today.
Tracie: I wound up "chasing" the light some--the light changed a lot!
Kristina: I was drawn to the light on the Vista house as well as on the cars in the parking lot! I stuck with my 3 value plan.
Stephanie: I finished one painting and, inspired by seeing Kristina's painting, I thought I'd paint a vertical too. (It's in progress).
Wendy: I am working in pastel...I (apparently) like darks!
Carol: I had established a lot of the scene and then painted the foreground trees ..it's hard to paint dark into light! I might adjust it.
Robin: I took a cold wax workshop recently, so I am inspired to work abstractly.
Jerry: I've painted this scene before....and this is where I am leaving it. I am happy enough with the outcome.
Elo: I too was attracted to the light on the Vista House and the cars in the lot! It was a challenge to stick with my value plan because of the changing light.
Tim: I have painted this view a lot...so I decided to change it up and zoom in on a distant hill.
Celeste: I painted the sky earlier and the scene changed a lot, so I chased the light!
Nancy: I am painting on colored canvas. I also used the Gamblin Red and Prussian today!
