Finished: Bluebell Woods 36 x 36 inches on canvas

Painting process continued from previous post: I start in with the palette knife on the trees and distant fields.  Trying hard not to over paint this section.

I am working my way down.  Pulling my palette knife across the canvas to give the appearance of distant flowers.  whe I get to the middle of the canvas I apply my marks  in a vertical motion, bringing the field towards the viewer.

If you love blues, violets and blue-greens this is a painting for you!  Here is the finished painting.  I do love the colors.  To make the  flowers more visible I went over the somewhat abstract parts with a brush and hinted at grass and bending stems.  Then I dotted some darker blue-violet and French Ultramarine (right out the tube mixed with liquin) around to bring out the flowers.  I think some parts are more successful than others but that's me being very critical.
