Ah, what a lovely day today. The sun was shining and it was absolutely beautiful out, I got my taxes done (such a relief) and I got to spend time with my dear friend from Massachusetts, Barbara. A treat of a day.

Have you noticed this spring how blue the sky looks behind a white blossoming tree? My neighbor tells me that her tree is a peach, and it's in full bloom right now, just gorgeous. It was too pretty today to be indoors painting, so here is this season's first plein air attempt. Ah, wonderful to be out! There are actually townhouses, bushes and woods behind it, so I had to fudge the background.

This one is actually about technique. I've alwasy struggled with "color harmony" and one way to get there is using a "Mother Color" throughout the painting. I've used Yellow Ochre here in most of the mixes. A technique introduced in the Webinar I'm taking, covered this past weekend. I think it works, yes?
