You'll just have to bear with me as I struggle with landscapes. This is how I paint a landscape - something happens to my sense of color and I just use blues and yellows to make greens and they are the same and don't show a variety of colors. And I find my value sense eludes me, too. Why? There must be a mental block for me when trying landscapes - have to break through. I know I can paint better than this - but don't have anything to show for it when doing grass and trees and buildings. Hmmm...much work to be done and you may have to suffer through for a while (or until I give up!).
I will go back to this and try to make it more visually appealing and will post that later.
But for now - the GCWatercolor Society has their monthly meeting today.
I am raring to go with Suzanne McDermott's online course in drawing and watercolor and looking forward to that starting this week. It should be a kick in the butt to get me going and thinking correctly instead of whining, "I can't do it!" She has a full class and a waiting list for her next class in September - check out my sidebar for her blog and links to her online courses.
I don't know why summer always finds me so lethargic. It seems my body just sits around, waiting for autumn and cooler temperatures and beautiful colors. Perhaps I need to move north in the summer? Unfortunately, Sweetie loves it when it's 95F and 75% humidity.
