Last summer I took my paints and easel and canvas out into the forest for some plein aire painting with others in my Art Group. It was fun being out there in the sunshine, exposed to the sounds of the birds and the buzzing of the bees, not forgetting the high pitched whine of the annoying mosquitoes. I blogged about it here.
At the end of the afternoon, this was my painting but I wasn't satisfied with it.
So I added some details and worked on it for a bit but I still wasn't happy, so it's been sitting in the unfinished pile since last June. I finally decided to have a clean out of the "stuff" accumulating in the room I jokingly call my studio, and decided this was worth having another go at, and this is the result.
Yes, the colours have definitely changed. I like this version a lot better. It may even be worth framing. I'll call it "The Edge of the Wildwood".
Let me know what you really think. You don't have to be polite!
UPDATE! I sold it at the Art Show in May 2019!!!!! I'm so glad that some one loved it enough to give it a new home.
