Spring in the Art world

May 20th, 2013

As I live in the middle of Spring in New England, I can’t help but feel the joy I see all around me.  It’s particularly beautiful this Spring, maybe because of the long hard winter endured this year.  The flowering trees are just phenomenal.  Of course I mention all of this as I see in my minds eye challenges on how to paint all of it!  Flowering trees, done loosely in watercolor, for an example, can be quite a challenge.  Large, mid and small shapes of color will do it. But to make it look believable as well as painterly is the challenging part.

So, I’ll keep my camera handy and snap away.  Fill up my ‘painting ideas’ folder more and more and just revel in the ideas and excitement they cause.
