Spring Dance

This lesson is for intermediate and advanced painters. This piece has some opportunities and challenges especially dealing with the bare branches and the distant water peaking through them. It takes some practice to depict familiar aspects of the landscape in our paintings in such a way that we convey not only the things, like trees and water, but doing so in such a way that suggests a season, mood and the poetry of the moment.I love the location that the reference was taken from. It’s a favorite painting spot of mine, so I hope you love it too!
