I was fairly happy with this when I finished but now I wish I had lightened the area of rushes that come forward and put some sky holes in the left hand tree. I do like the rhythm of the composition and I'm enjoying the colors that I added to my palette a few weeks ago: cad yellow deep, alizarin and cerulean blue. I'm real happy with this area for painting. I'll go back again.
Today I'm happy. I had a hard time trying to make the colors for those distant trees. Wiped them of a couple of times which probably contributed to me finally getting what I wanted. This is a very nice, quiet place to paint.
I thought I had done pretty well but now I see things I should have noticed while painting. Oh well. I had a wonderful time. I like the colors and composition. Seems like a composition I could try again and in a very safe location which always appeals.
This is our back garden walkway looking toward the neighbors' house and garage. I've not been able to come up with a composition at home in my garden before. I'm pretty happy with it. That's a big perle d'azur clematis in the foreground and parsley gone to flower across the path. So wonderful to paint at home.
