Maine-ly a Meadow #1
by Judith Flynn Lochbrunner
acrylic on canvas board
20 x 16 inches
But there was an idea and a memory that I wanted to paint. The meadows we saw on our walk at Acadia National Park last month were still fresh in my mind.
( Some darks and lights added to create a foreground and a background
slowly crafting it into a composition.)
( More lights were added to the background and to the foreground
to lead the viewer's eye through the painting.)
Neutralized colors were added in several layers to create a softer, more soothing look. All the bold colors are still there when you look at the painting up close but now you don't need a pair of sunglasses!
More meadow paintings are on the work table as I explore this theme for the rest of October.
This painting will be at the Jefferson Center as part of the Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge holiday show the entire month of November.
