Spring greens!

Despite being not in Vermont, as soon as the ski season was over I was getting a hankering to paint some springtime-in-VT colors. So I dug up some of the photos I took last spring when the grass and trees were so bright green that whenever I tried to paint them they just looked fake. I decided that I wanted to do a little bit of experimenting with brighter colors and less careful copying of reality. And it was fun! The inspiration for these two paintings came from my favorite VT artists--Woody Jackson (top one) and Sabra Field (bottom). Now I'm excited to get home and do some paintings of this spring!
Both are watercolor, 9 x 12.
