Wednesday art class was back at the park. Here my goal was shapes and center of interest. That is not easy for me when I do not have a figure or a structure. I decided on the path of light behind the tree. It was a good day of learning.
Then in the last 10 minutes I used up the paint on my palette with this little study of the path going up the hill. I have walked it many times. But my result is more of an abstract. Shapes and values. Today I worked on this same view in a larger format but I don't feel I have it yet. The one thing hard to deny is the loveliness of the late summer hills.
