Peaceful Afternoon by the Baldwin River

I love the fact that spring is really in full swing here after a long and cold winter; it’s sunny and the moss is growing on the front lawn; irises and tulips are putting up leaves. So, I decided to do an outdoor painting, based on a photo I took of my side lawn and some outdoor chairs last summer.

I wanted to capture the feel of afternoon light on the grass and trees, and had a lot of fun with this one!

Palette used: yellow ochre, burnt sienna, titanium white, ultramarine blue, sap green, cad. yellow light, raw umber
