Summer Workshop

Where did summer go?  Colored leaves are raining outside my window inviting another attempt at a landscape painting!

The three pieces above were painted during the summer paint along on-line classes referenced in the August post.  These were fun challenges and three more  "starts"  from the series are stacked behind the easel that may or may not ever be finished.   While landscape painting will never be my favorite genre, I am now more comfortable diving into nature's wonderful  presentations and have a much better feel for selecting paintable scenes,  handling light and shadow and being ever aware of shapes, clones, and those dreaded "potato rocks"!
