Predominate shapes

My goal today was to "care" more about major shapes than to get too fussy with detail. I may leave it like this, or add and subtract. It is always enlightening to look at a painting a full day later.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, After the rain, oil on 10x8 canvas panel

Que ce soit un croquis ou une peinture, il est bon de laisser le temps jouer le magicien. Il opère d'une manière magique sur notre regard, tel un bon vin...
Vos verts sont magnifiquement nuancés... On peut y sentir les odeurs après la pluie...
Gros bisous.

I love the cant of this one, Celeste. Adds another element of interest. The pinks in the foreground grasses are just perfection and lends to the romantic feel and the overall dreaminess!

Leave it. It's soft and pastoral and lovely like all your work. Nice.

Celeste - what a beautiful piece. Very strong. I love how you saw shapes in your field. It's what I've been working on and in this piece it looks natural and effortless - as it should. Great work. Not easy!

This makes me feel I'm on a helicopter ride--and it's swaying. I like it.

Here, here to the "leave its." I quite enjoy the softness this piece has.
