This is the first landscape painting in a series of the four seasons. Summer colors are strong with a rich palette. The greens are deep and dark with traces of olive and the grass is tall and lush with a scattering of yellow flowers. A strong blue sky dotted with white billowy clouds draws you into a warm summer day.
I'll make final adjustments when the entire series is finished to bring a cohesion to the collection. I'm starting spring and fall now. Working on four different paintings with the same image at various times of the year is definitely a challenge. I look forward to sharing the others with you!
