After talking to an artist friend of mine at last weekend's art reception, I started this painting out with a sketch in alizarin crimson. From this unusual start, I filled in the light. Then the rest came together, but I tried to keep that wonderful hue active in the darks. I spent hours over the weekend pruning and weeding this area, and it has called me to paint it! Thanks to Carole McCall for sharing her technique with me! So fun to try new things! Painting number 1265 in 1265 days.
