I have had a hard time getting back into painting (not to mention blogging and even visiting blogs) this fall. Anyway, I have finally broken through to the other side of whatever was keeping me from painting, and am thus able to present numbers 34 and 35 on this journey to 100 landscapes. I hope the rest of the winter will be more productive.
We had a gorgeous autumn here in Touraine this year. A few weeks ago, while I was out walking with my sons Damien and Paul, a storm rolled in in the distance, creating a thrilling contrast between the dark stormclouds and the gold afternoon light we’d had until then. Luckily we were armed with a camera. I think Damien took the photos. Here is my feeble attempt to paint the scene.
I was thrilled to have finally finished a painting, but felt there was too much detail in it, so I did another one.
And now all I feel like doing is painting.
