Using a new board by Canson,( New to me) in the twlight tone, I planned to try this spot in plein-air today. Its the mountain stream that always runs down the mountain, and its one of my favorite places because of the big tree. My thought was to try and improve on my forground work, and while you can't paint every grass, you need to try at at least show the feeling of it - -- the light hitting it maybe - - - - I struggled, but feel I did take away someting to learn from. This paper is mounted, but they put the textured side out to paint on - - -I have grown use to painting on the smooth side and this took some getting use to. I bought a lot of it, so I will have to practise a lot more!!!! Its going to be an early spring - -and maybe a hot summer so I need to get going!!!
