Late April – Mill Pond

As you can tell from these photos of this painting excursion, I have a long way to go with color.

This is a photograph of what I was trying to capture.

The colors that i put on the canvas in the photos below are much too vibrant and bold  and as you can see with the initial blocking of color – the undertones were too bright for this day.    Soooo much to learn and to practice.

After a couple of hours of painting – so much to learn about color
