Oil on paper. June 6, 2009.
I was trying to capture the look of light shining on patches of grass growing on the forest floor. It looks a little like white flowers instead… but I’m happy with it either way. I actually drew out the composition before painting this time, and set down three bands of thin color: bright green on top, light blue-green in the middle, and brownish-red in the front. I’m really loving this grass technique I made up a while ago of scratching little lines with the palette knife.
