I began this one on the river, days ago. Today in the studio I knew just what to do to make it work. This one reminds me of Monet's Giverney beauties, not anywhere as gorgeous, but it has that quality of light with violets. Violets can be the real joiners in a landscape; sort of the gregarious souls that make everyone feel good at a party. On these foggy mornings violet and her subtle cousins (pinks and grays) ARE the color of the atmosphere.
