From Ewww to Ooooooh!
After a morning of plein air painting at a lavender farm in Catlett, Virginia, I produced the first painting which is a dud. The light kept changing due to clouds rolling in, but I managed to get some color notes I could reference later. Basically, the 2 hour effort served as notes to refer back to. I took some photos right at the beginning of our session, and was able to do a painting (16 x 20) that I am quite pleased with. I couldn't have done it without having stood there in that space for a good while and picking up the subtleties of light and distance. So, I was bummed after I painted out, but managed to get my mojo back in the studio.***happy dance***
