Once Upon A Midday Deary 6"x6" oil
This was not so much a value study as it is a painting the emphasizes the mid values. I was swimming and looked out the window and this is what I saw. Everything was bathed in shades of gray with the background completely washed out in fog. I punched up the foreground trees to a darker value to show a contrast. I painted this from memory, so it is pretty much made up and I didn't want it to be about details, but rather shapes and design. I can see pushing this to a more abstract level.
