Yesterday's painting isn't this bright in real life -- perhaps it's the monitor? But a bit more gold and blue/green than seen here ..I tried NOT to fuss with the trees and leave them a tad more abstract than I would normally, and do the fields in one or two strokes finished with a drybrush detail.
I'd also like to thank YOU for your kind responses and suggestions towards achieving more looseness in my paintings. I will definitely be doing more practicing with those suggestions as I work through the 'challenges' of artful growth (or whatever it's called when we keep trying for something different!!!) LOL
In the meantime, I'll be practicing in my head as I head back to NC this morning and catch up on some much needed sleep! Two year olds really have the market corned on energy, don't they?! LOL
