oil on linen on panel
Set out to paint this a lot more abstract when I started this morning...? But somehow I got right into painting it more realistically...it's difficult to sway what comes naturally...
I enjoyed some of the brush strokes and finding a way to describe the warmth of that afternoon sun. Next time I need to have a better plan...Anyone else struggling with abstract? Any good tips?...
I might need to paint it once this way to get it out of my system and then tackle it again:-)
It was a nice surprise that I had the chance to paint on Labor Day - thanks to hubby and kids being busy and getting up early! Wishing everyone a Happy Labor Day - now it's time to relax with family and friends.
