THE GREENS OF FLORIDA BY Cecelia Lyden
This site of my last paintout in Florida was at a local botanical garden. I arrived early. The sun was still low in the sky and there was lots of deep shade, especially under that unusual tree with the huge trunk. I love shade and sunlight contrasts, but you can barely see the different sections of the trunk, I'm going to lighten some of the tree up a bit. Otherwise, the lush greens, rich shade and bright sunlight on the tree and some of the plants really were a pleasure to paint.
