Orchard Row, Virginia Peaches
by Judith F Lochbrunner
acrylic on paper
6 x 6 inches
Another painting for today that continues the challenge of painting fruit trees in bloom. In this work I have taken a row of trees and tired to keep the painting focused on them. I do like the spacing of 3 and 2. The mountain and row of woods behind the field are painted in soft and muted colors to keep them in the background.
The peach trees are less individualized and are painted as a "group". This is exactly how I would need to approach a larger work using this same subject matter. And hopefully with some planning there will be a large orchard painting on the easel in the studio this spring.
Thank you for keeping up with my blog. The challenge is nearly to the final week.
