Forest Path


I'm going to try to get back into the habit of "a painting a day". I've missed Blogging and painting. I've had a bit of trouble getting my paint brush back in my hand without Donna's voice cheering me on from the side lines.
I wish I could paint sound into a picture. This painting is from a walk I took with my dogs yesterday afternoon; just out the edge of the forest, on down the hill, is the ocean. All the way down I could hear the sound of the breaking surf getting louder. The forest sounds were muffled by all of the thick undergrowth.
My scanner isn't going to happen so it's photos of the paintings for now. The quality isn't the same but it does the trick.
I had the "happy accident" of ordering the "wrong" size sketch book the last time I ordered. I ordered 9"X12" instead of my regular 6X9...Opps! It works out much better because I am always trying to cram too much detail into too small of a page!
