I'm going to give you all a break from that landscape stuff and maybe just do trees for a while. Simple trees. We'll see how it goes.
I haven't given up on the landscapes yet but maybe need to tackle this one little element at a time - trees, skies, grass, ponds, lakes, rivers, mountains, oh so many elements!! ha ha And doing landscapes from photos just doesn't cut it, folks, so I know why there are plein air painters. And I'm honestly not sure I can be one - it's either too hot or too damp or too buggy or too something (no, I'm not an outdoorsy kind of gal!).
