HONEYSUCKLE BY THE LAKE, 11x14, oil by Sharon Benner
This is a repost of a previous posting. The first painting had blue water, and a pink sky. This can't happen because a large area of water is merely a mirror of what is above it. In my hast to finish on a 90 degree day, I fell into old preconceived ideas that water is blue, trees are green and distance is cool blue. I haven't been painting en plein air of late, and this is what happens!!!! I think this painting is a better example of what I viewed yesterday morning.
