Last week was my school vacation week, and although February, we had some record-breaking days here in Boston, in the low 70s. My friend, Marianne, and I headed in to Boston to paint for the afternoon. It was a stunning afternoon, filled with families and laughter and the optimism and walking-with-head-up that comes with sunlight and warmth and the promise of spring. I have a little more work to do on the painting, but it was great to be out exploring shapes, values, and the interesting leaf-free trees against the backdrop of buildings. Below are some images of the painting in process.
Oh, and had plenty of my favorite activity, chatting with the public, especially children who ask such great questions, and offer their ideas. Wonderful!
Not sure why but getting an exquisite Victorian feel with this piece, Jody. Love it!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Autumn Leaves. I see what you're saying. I think it's the purple/green harmony which reminds me of color harmonies in William Morris designs of that era.Delete
