Notes From My Painting Journal
I've been quite busy painting fields this summer, a slight departure from my focus on trees, but of course, the trees are part of the scenery always here in North Florida. Painting the fields helps me to practice brushwork and challenges me to not become too obsessed on my dear trees. The fields also challenge me to a better understanding of mixing greens, so very important to a Florida painter because we have endless greens, warm and cool and every temperature in between. The fields are full of green in the summer and the subtleties abound. Every texture comes to life in the fields and trees, so my brushwork skills improve as well. Oh how I love the landscape here in Florida!!
