Back in the Saddle ...

Midsummer Morning: the beginning

Not a long post ... I FINALLY got back to painting today and I just wanted to show you all this new one I’ve started. This is from a reference sketch I made this morning, and I’m painting the colors from memory. Normally this itty bitty bayou would be nearly dried up this time of year, but we’ve had so much rain this summer that the water is still pretty high. It was slightly foggy this morning, so I’m going to soften the colors way down, but I wanted this underpainting to be vibrant. So far it has just the feel I wanted. I think I can finish this one tomorrow ... it sure feels good to be painting again!
