Another evening of plein air painting last night, this time at the Spring Tree Nature Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Seems to be a lot more to see there – I stayed pretty close to the parking lot. I was challenged with the composition on this one. The cottonwood tree, the foreground wildflowers and the color of the sky all caught my eye, and I ended up pretty evenly dividing the painting between them. Maybe it would be better to emphasize one over the others. I’ll have to try again and find out :).
