November Afternoon, Mt. Tabor (detail)

The underpainting for the middle panel of the triptych--as always at this stage, a one step forward, two steps back process of sneaking up on what it is I'm trying to say.

It's going to be interesting to see how the softer light and more muted color of this last group will work with the more saturated panels. It should provide a strong visual contrast, a very clear seasonal expression.

I haven't put this one together yet with the "summer" triptychs--and you're right, Altoon, it will be interesting to see how they relate to each other. Hopefully successfully! The panels in this new triptych are 6" larger than in the other two. A very big difference--suddenly the mountain or road become a sizable expanse to cover with paint, and the surface is much more of an issue.

Thank you, Shea. This one is so much more subdued than my usual. I'm glad you are responding to the color, even within this narrow range.
