Dawn in the country is always a sight to behold! I grew up in rural Kentucky and really savor my opportunities to go back to those rolling farmlands, no matter the season.
We don't get much "Winter" in Florida, so I expect to paint a couple of snowy scenes during this challenge. Stubby, snowy fields are fun as well as challenging. The ruts and uneven ground left after the harvest make the ground undulate in weird and beautiful ways.
I work with brushes and/or palette knife, depending on what I want from the medium. Slathering on paint in some areas and brushing others helps to define the center of interest, achieving both energetic and calm areas.
