Hilltop Beauties


Okay, I'm horrible at titles for paintings! This was from a hilltop seeded with wildflowers, overlooking the Minnesota River near Jordan--just a delight to paint in the midst of all the color! The middle ground was a lot darker, but so boring that I had to deliniate the trees more just to give it some interest. It's painted on a medium rough cotton duck panel--which just ate up the paint and dulled the lustre of the oils.I'm thinking I should sand down these panels and add more coats of gesso to get a smoother painting surface.
