Cattails



A very grey overcast foggy day at a local park for art class today.

Lots of reeds, cattails.

I got really close-up.

  1. Cattails bring back happy childhood memories. I like the mute neutral tones in this one. The sun makes everything brighter here so your painting is more like England.

  2. Helen, you did a great job on this! I love all the verticals in this and the colors you chose. Growing up we used to have a "swampy" area close by where cattails grew. I always found them fascinating, even as a child.

  3. This has a nice quality of varied negative space in the lights.It creates a lovely edge!
