peek a boo

This painting  started with a vivid pink ground, and I blocked in with raw umber.  This evening when  I began to paint it, I thought I'd go for a spring mood.   I chose my pigments with that feeling in mind. What interested me most was the way glimpses of architecture peeks from behind the trees which I find is creating more interesting shapes and tones than if I could see all the detail of the buildings.  It's  a work in progress.


Go ahead...make my day. I love our mini-mails!
