Wednesday our painting class met at a local park that looks across the river to the hills south of Petaluma. It was a perfect day......clear with a fresh breeze but not windy. No blown over easels.
I did two studies playing with the notan and hoping to find a rhythm in the landscape . I was looking for S curves and gestures in the scene before me.
I am happy with the studies and will take what I learned and apply it to a larger canvas.
You get to vote........square or rectangular?
And in case you are wondering, the grey-blue on the left is a path......not a river. The river is buried out of sight behind the green horizontal.....along with the freeway! A big challenge will be to make it a certain path.......not water.
