I had a blast painting these guys. Their skin is full of colors, especially early in the morning. I can't wait to see the reaction to this painting when it goes on the wall in May. When a painting makes you giggle. To me, that is a success.
It is snowing out. Actually, it's a Nor'easter. March 12. So the only thing on my mind right now is summer.
Thus, this big beautiful tree. I think I will appreciate this summer a bit more than all the summers past! It is hard to walk away from these tree paintings once I start them because they are so fun to paint.
Here is another post from the IPad. It seems a bit blurry. I don't know if this is going to work out.
Any way, I love doing little studies because I can try different techniques. I am pleased by the result. The hay seemed daunting at first but I've got this now.
I am posting from my IPad tonight rather than my camera and laptop. I usually manipulate photos of my work until they are as accurate as possible. I think the quality of the photo may not be as good, but the ease of use is much better. We will see if I can get into doing it this way. This painting is big. I have been working on it constantly since I sketched it out two days ago. (minus some hours of sleeping)
