Went to the dentist today, always fun, DEFINITELY STINKING NOT. At least I have not gotten claustrophobic for a while. I do hate being pinned in that dental chair.
I practiced plein aire again today. I had a nice one going of a little scene in the back yard, but I bit off a little more that I should have and ruined. I find it much easier when I choose a simple subject and work small for the first go. I overworked this one terribly, wiped it off, and went around to the front yard to start over. I painted some of our flowers, can't remember the name, but they climb and are quite beautiful. I wanted to paint our Irises this year, but they only lasted a few days and only 5 bloomed.
This one is a good one for me. I lost some edges, which always pleases my eye, and I will finish by doing a bit of detail on the blooms and darkening the background later. I ran out of time for today. At least I had some success today. A little success keeps us coming back for more.
