New Painting...in Progress...Day One

I started a new painting this week. I'm using reference photos from a trip years ago to an arboretum in Ohio during the autumn. In Florida there is no seasonal color so I find the color changes so fascinating and beautiful. As a new experience, I'm also taking photos of my painting as it progresses, after each work session, and posting it on my Facebook artist's page, Penny's Art Adventures. I hope this will be an interesting little saga for my family, friends, and 'fans' to see how I create a painting from start to finish. I'm sure every artist has his or her own method...how fun it would be to see how other artists go about their creative process. I only hope my finished painting will be one I feel is my best work.

This is the first day's work, the 'crayola stage' as my daughter described it. I had only a couple of hours and wanted to cover the canvas quickly since I find blank white canvas distracting.
