One nice thing about being a runner are the chances one gets to truly appreciate the simple beauty of your surroundings. Being a slow runner, I get longer chances to appreciate them. The photo for this painting was taken while I was on a run, I carry a cell phone with a camera for when the mood and lighting strikes.
Two things that I LOVE to do with a painting I did with this landscape. I love trees that are backlit and I love painting with white straight from the tube. (I think I heard an instructor or two fainting with the last statement). I had some fun with this one.
Anyways, you can find out more here.
