Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

In the Burgess Garden

A few weeks ago I participated in a plein air painting event. The weather was perfect, but alas, I was not ! My mistakes were many, primarily because the dark areas in the landscape became opaque instead of shadowy, and the subtlety of the water was lost entirely. So, I came back to my studio , and painted a version on Yupo, which captured the brilliance of the day, and the infinite variety of light on the water. Phew ! Yupo is leading me down a very different path....
