Okay-I really bit off more than I could chew on this one! So much going on here-many lights and shadows and midtones. I was looking for a scene that had: perspective, objects in the foreground and background and objects relating to each other; foreground shadow and sunlight. Object: to simplify the shapes.

I got up to go pee; came back, and someone had put the white lawn chairs infront of the pond. Awesome! I could not have planned it better! Then I had lunch, finished early, and someone was in one of the lawn chairs! Even more better!

In hindsight, I went a little el nutso on the color palette-shoulda really limited myself on just greens for awhile. Should just painted the shadows and lights in greens, (value study) then loaded in a selected palette.

Loved this one. I looked at it all during the time we were eating lunch with great enjoyment... (looking at your painting AND eating a nice meal!)
It was nice to meet you during the paint out. Sharon said you guys went painting yesterday too. Are you joining us tomorrow?
Perhaps we'll continue to cross paths.
