Landscape in Contrasts

1/8 Sheet
Arches 140#CP

This is another landscape from Virgil Carter's landscape class and based on the same view of a pond near my home. My intent here was to use contrasts and so while this is 'green' in some areas, I used yellow and Payne's grey - they made a neat green--- fun.

We're off with guests today on a tour of area potteries. While we as gardeners try our best to amend the clay soils around our homes in order to better grow plants, the talented potters in our area use the clay for some of the most wonderful vessels ---!!

I'll be gone until late this evening - so I'll catch up with everyone tomorrow! It's going to be brutally HOT -- stay safe and cool!

Hi Lyn,

I was so glad you mentioned the workshop you are doing at wet canvas. It is closed, but I am following along anyway.

A question: did you mask out the tree trunks? or did you scratch out the paint later?

Love your work,

xoxo

Ooh, this is very interesting and outside your normal color palette I think. But it's very arty and I like it. I also wondered if you scratched out the trees!

Still voting every day.
Hugs,
Lorraine
