This studio piece has been sitting in the corner for a while, waiting for final touches. I used a yellow ground color. It glows through the blue of the sky and water, and helps to harmonize everything else.

I love painting tangled patches of plants. I’m always working on brushstroke variety and control, and the foreground is a smorgasbord of different marks.
