Golden Gardens February 6" x 8"

It looked like the sun was about to come out and it was 58* so I thought I'd try painting.  It kept getting grayer and grayer.  By the time I quit my hands had gone from being cold to a sort of tingly clenched up.  I'll make sure I have my gloves next time.
The purple of the background trees seemed so bright outside but here at home it looks brown.  I'll try not to grey it so much next time.  The shape of the water was actually to the right of the background scene so I was pretty happy that I was able to alter the composition.  I got lost when it came to those foreground trees.  Still not sure how I should have handled that.
Heading up to my dad's in a couple days so won't be able to paint for a while.
