Click Here to Bid (8x10in.)
This is one I did from a photo reference I took in California. It's a similar scene to this one, which I did from life. I'm still getting the hang of the difference between painting from photos and from real life. Both have their challenges. But I'm a big believer in using the paintings you did in the field to inform the ones you do inside. And I didn't do that here. I'm kicking myself because in looking at the old one now I see the grass was far more golden, and that didn't come through in the photo. But I'm posting it because I'm still happy with it over-all. Which makes me realize (again) that the point is not necessarily accuracy - it's art.
