In real life, the painting isn't as intense as I view it from my computer screen, but as always with scanning or photographing artwork with particular colors, it's difficult to get accuracy ...
Still, my attempt here was to loosen up and play a bit with landscapes. I am enjoying the direction my flowers are going - loose and yet detailed, splatters and drips -- but I haven't quite figured out how to bring those things into landscapes on a consistent basis. For this painting, I began wet into wet for the top of the mountains, and then let the paint flow down the page, spraying water away to create the fog. I added more paint for texture and then the foreground ...The results are closer to what was in my mind ....
The Arboretum has made it to the last two rounds for our hoped-for orchard! That means if we keep voting and remain in the top 10 winners circle, we'll received our fruit trees for the hungry. Thank YOU for helping get us this far -- please, please continue to vote -- THANKS so much!
We're off to the Farmer's Market this morning and again some finish some chores before painting again -- I'd love to spend more time experimenting with paint -- fingers crossed!
Have a great day!
