These flowers were in full bloom, dancing in the breeze and I tried to capture the exuberant nature of this flower bed with lively brush strokes instead of focusing on the details.

Visited this site in the horrible heat of the summer. I can see that it would be a great plain air site in nicer weather. Today's challenge was getting the perspective right on the mill. Despite studying perspective numerous times in my life, I've not put it into practice and just don't have the muscle memory. But that's what these daily paintings are all about. Gaining mastery over my skills.
There are canoes tucked in the foliage all around Lake Lynn. I've done some larger paintings of different canoes and very happily have sold one of them. This is more of a rowboat than a canoe. I'm not sure I got the foreground dark enough, but the alla prima technique is getting a little easier.

I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
