6" x 8" - Oil on Panel
I wanted to try the potted ivy again but this time do it with a whole different color family. This one started using a panel that had been toned with burnt sienna and that definitely helped set the mood. The problem with that was that the density of the underpainting made it almost impossible to add a "sunlight" feel to the painting. That and the yellows acted funky on the darker base. It was a nice try but not what I was really after.
