Lunch on the Prairie


This is the third painting of this same subject. This one was one of the first ones
 and I was never happy with it.I stuck it back, probably 4 years ago.  I got it out and re-worked it with gouache...again.  I really like the backgrounds that are flat, and have so much contrast with the foreground. I also like the way it works with the transparent watercolor. I painted the sky, and the grass with gouache, and  left most of the pots just like they were.
