UMBER SERIES....continued

Two more canvases added to this series of landscapes dominated by earth tones.

Umber Series #3   Acrylic on Gallery wrapped canvas  16x40"

Umber Series #4  Acrylic on galley wrapped canvas  30x40"

I'm finding it difficult to get good photos that accurately show the hues and values with this palette.  I"ve tried with and without lighting, and outdoors in shaded sunlight.  The fourth painting has been especially difficult.  The reds are lost in the the trees and the foreground.  I may need to consult a professional photographer.

A fifth painting is currently in progress.
