I painted this for a comission about a month ago. It's small - 12" x 16" and loose. These evening light plein air pieces take a couple of sessions to paint since the light remains correct for less than an hour. I wish I'd have cropped out the grass, though. Always learning - that's the thing. Actually, after looking at it some more, maybe not. Maybe I would have shown the lightest green trees in the foreground just a hair more. Maybe not. anyway. keep working.
On another note, I saw this clip on tv last night and love it. It's especially for you Claire.
