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! I'll attach the flowers done in class and the photo of the painting for homework. 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!
