Back to Landscapes
It's nice to be painting a landscape again. I made progress today in the studio, but I have an old issue cropping up again. I have a lower left corner problem that happens because I foolishly choose to paint a view that the upper right corner of the canvas obscures. I used to do this all the time, didn't think about it yesterday, and here it is again. In the actual landscape, there's a nearly dead kalmia (mountain laurel) in that spot, not something I'd highlight in a painting anyway. I started to put the slates that make a path back to the hammock in place, so I might move them over and balance out the way-too-dark one in front anyway.
