watercolor on paper
9 x 12
Done en plein air for Landscape Painting. There is this really beautiful path by my house where I like to walk my dogs and every time I walk up it I think "Ive got to paint this." So today I did. I had a hard time beginning this piece. I wasnt getting the composition correct and I was getting caught up in the little details instead of just going for it. Once I put brush to paper all was well. This is quite a busy path so I had a quite a few people stop to chat with me.
I think it is pretty successful. I like the way the light falls across the path, the colors, and the way the trees look. I am not totally happy with the direction of the path. In real life it slopes down and I was unable to capture that slope in my painting.
