This was a week that we worked on some flowers in class and then our homework was this landscape from a photo we were given.
I'm finding that flowers that aren't part of a scene are not a big draw for me - yet when I see them in others' work I can certainly appreciate them. Give me a landscape any day.
I ended up rushing this one for homework as I left it til after work during the week - and walked home from the studio afterward - giving me about 2 hours soup to nuts. still, I hope to do more similar to this. The challenge was the tilled field really looks like a dirt road My husband told me it is definitely not a tilled field. I have to admit - it looks like that to me, too!
Finally, Jackie suggested we see if we can put in a painting or two into an upcoming show about walkable and bikeable communities. So - I painted Howard and Lou on the bikepath from this weekend, and also suggested a Winooski Rotary walking painting. Will let you know if either make it!
