In the Forest

In the Forest

It is good to be challenged. I don't paint in the forest very often. Ocean scenes have been my preferred subject maybe because of familiarity. I like hiking and wish I did it more often. My friend and I went painting outdoors, and he suggested we paint in the forest. We went to a couple of places before we settled at this particular location. It felt very good to be reunited with the woods. It smells amazing...
I liked the light and shadow on the path. Because I almost never paint in the woods, I was intimidated by the amount of trees and bushes, however reminded myself to think about shapes, values, colors and edges. And I did. It was a wonderful experience to paint something new.
