burnt umber dreams

 |  February 20, 2009

Speaking of dreams, the other night I had a dream that I was painting on these huge canvases. It was a great dream. I have had other dreams where I’m painting and it actually helps me make progress on a painting that I was working on. I wish I had more of those!

In this dream all I can remember was burnt umber. And golden tones of ochre. But mostly splashes of burnt umber. I wish I could remember more. The minute I woke up I tried to recall what I was painting, but all I could remember was burnt umber. Very strange.

Anyway, so I started on some paintings with burnt umber this week. Here is a detail shot of a much larger canvas.
