10x10 pastel and watercolor on Uart
It's really hard to make the feeling of softness in the grasses. Layers and layers of color with a very warm underpainting was my plan. hmmmmmm.
This field is down at the end of a road that ends at the river. Lowell sent me out there to go to his sister Kay's farm. I met them on Thursday. When I went to the farm I was instructed to walk through the fields to the river. Her husband said not to worry about the bull in the fields. He will just look. Then when I asked, "What if he gets curious?" He replied, "Good, you have running shoes on. Go to the river, bulls don't swim." Now, knowing my recent luck with wild animal sightings I decided I might do better in a Bull-less field.
Everyone here is so nice and helpful. It really is a great place to paint; nice people, beautiful fields and rivers!
