Corn in High Summer
When times are as rough as they've been the last couple of weeks and fatigue makes it hard to concentrate, I turn to that WetCanvas lesson that uses wet washes to create a background and one's imagination to finish the piece (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=475094).
This 'hot' painting -- (I suppose it' s my need for the kind of sunshine that actually warms us! LOL) came from this exercise .... all that glow and sun reminded me of the cornfields of our county on a blinding summer's day --- the sun so bright you can hardly see the green in the corn... the entire field ablaze with light ....
I've a ton of things to catch up with this weekend so I'll be scarce. But more than those pesky chores, I do so hope to spend some quality time returning to painting and the leisure and relaxation it represents.
