I absolutely love that by ‘back in the studio’ I mean standing outside painting!
Love the color in these two images, but had the all important lesson in the importance of a thumbnail to check composition reinforced! There is a lot of dark area in the first image, could have tried a few other techniques to minimize the draw to that area, and in the second image the trees in the background need more sky to register as trees. All in all, however, I am thrilled with the results. It is exciting to produce images I am proud to sign as opposed to just a few months ago when I felt like I was banging my head on the easel and should rethink my decision to paint!
