I had about an hour and fifteen minutes to paint today and no time to adjust the colors on my palette. So when I was asked "what color is missing?" I immediately answered "red." I need to go back later this week and see where the red fits in.
This painting started with a black and white underpainting, which I slapped onto the board in about 20 minutes. The morning was very gray, a bit misty, even. On the moments when the sun broke through, I had a completely different take on the scene.
