Natural world » SUMMER RAINS



This picture evolved at the same time as I was sweating over the Hot Season painting and it was something of a relief to do it as it seemed to come much more easily.
I did three visual notes after which I felt I had a good idea of how the picture was to be. I sat and it painted itself quite easily in only one session.

It is a mystery to me as to why this picture came so easily when I had to work so much harder on the hot season picture.  Sometimes everything seems to flow and the idea comes and is executed easily while at other times trying to paint the picture is like getting blood out of a stone.
