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.

Smile

'Smile'  is an acrylic painting of my friend Pat.   She is always taking photos of everybody,  esp at the community happenings!...
