Green Houses, First Layers Complete

Here is another progress report on my Green House Painting.
One of the reasons I painted over the sky and green houses is because I wasn't to start creating visual depth in my paintings. Working layers of shadow and color from the back all the way forward to the viewer. I want to make it so when you look at this it has a near tangible depth, so the first layers of black sky and misty green-blue are very important. Next I'll add shadows of ferns/trees in the GH (Green House) and I'm going to do some research to see how colors come forward and recede in galaxies. I'm thinking the cool colors are farther away and the warmer ones up front, but research must be done to be sure!


Wish me luck, this is going to be the biggest challenge I've faced yet with a paint brush!
Stay Artsy,

Watching this process I sometimes think that the changes on this canvas are really happening within you.
