Time Was...

I did some final tweaking on this painting from the Chris Leeper workshop last week.  This was my attempt at painting directly and spontaneously.  I am happy about how it turned out and it is much looser than my usual style.  I am not certain that I can do this without the help of the wonderful instructor!  This is 1/4 sheet of Fabriano Artistico 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

What a lovely home and yard! Well done, Barb!

Barb, the purple of shadow and the yellow of sunlit green have such good contrast. My eye is drawn to the middle to that beautiful sunny spot.

Thank you,
Irina

Thanks, AutumnLeaves - it is sort of nostalgic, isn't it?

Irina...thank you for your astute observations - that is my favorite part of this also.
