Quiet Fall Landscape

More landscape practice - trying to simplify brush strokes and details. This landscape is a bit lighter in tones in real life, but no matter how I scanned, photographed or adjusted it, that gold/yellow really seemed to throw off the colors ...

Our temps have cooled again and we're in for a few days of rain - much, much needed...

Our current landscapes are greening nicely - though the trees have yet to fully leaf out. I found a tulip in bloom in one of my gardens, though ....and the deer have consumed my daffs's an interesting spring ....!

Enjoy your day!

So dreamy looking. I think I'll go for a walk!

It looks like a spring painting on the verge of summer to me! It's very pretty no matter which. Hope you get all that rain. We got enough to water our trees so I am happy but still hoping those storms in California come through with more. It's so much better for the plants than our well water which is slightly too alkaline for them (safe for us, just hard on plants).

Very early spring-- as freebird says--looks very like this to me. Such a happy uplift it gives after this winter.

It's so pretty Lin. I always have trouble scanning yellow also.
