I got out to Poolesville late today and had 45 minutes to paint. The idea was a flash of inspiration and it started out as good as it gets for me. Within 45 minutes, it was almost high noon, shadows completely changed and the poorly mixed colors on my palette made the flowers in the hot sun look tired.
I'm going to scrape this down and repaint it -- the idea still works and much of what I was trying to do still makes sense, just didn't come through in my haste to get something on the canvas. Check back.
