Outside again today, in the neighborhood. This time in front of a neighbor's townhouse, who runs a pre school daycare in her home. I had little ones around me explaining that it was their tree I was painting. And to show me, they climbed it. So cute, and they are wonderfully inquisitive. There was an entire row of townhouses, but it was hard enough just trying to do the one, so I opted to have it be a single.
The thing that attracted me, besides the lovely color, was the shadow, but in the painting it almost looks too blue, or maybe I'll just change the sky. Here's my model.
Disclaimer: There is one corner of the canvas (bottom right) that didn't fold properly, in manufacturing, and will probably have to be unstapled and remounted before framing. A framer should be able to do this.
