Back to the jungle today to paint the banyan tree yet again. I made a value drawing to start with and worked on a 6x6 square. I also premixed my dark using Ult. Blue, Alizarin and Viridean and some greens using Ultramarine with Cad Yellow Med and with Cad Yellow Light and a green mixed with Thalo blue and Cad Yellow Light. I still want to see more variations in the greens here but I'm more pleased with the shapes than last week. This is my second week painting with the Naples Outdoor Painters which has been meeting on Thursdays forever. I really enjoyed it.
