This was a very green house on the water with the
hills across the lake .This is the first adjustment to
the initial block-in. There is much grass in the foreground.
As my paintings tend not to be literal interpretations,
the difficulty with grass is how to present grass so
that it reads grass ( sort of ) but still fits in my
design. Most of the painting thus far has little texture.
If I make the foreground textured, do I need to
balance that somewhere else in the painting?
And, of course, what techniques will I use to
create this texture? So far I've used a palette knife.
Will continue with its progression. Be creative,
and keep cool during the heat wave.
