Thank you for more "eye candy" again, today!! I can't help but wonder how long it takes for a student (like me) to get to your stage of loose, expressive style of painting!!! I can only hope. Another beautiful painting. Thank you, Julian. elaine
Hi Julian, I can inhale the lavender from here. Seeing the soft lavenders in the painting brings it all home. Nothing like your wonderful landscapes. So happy for your students to learn and enjoy your great classes.
Hi Julian! I love this picture. In particular the way your comment provokes this great energetic cross from the lavender itself after a week of total exposure: Oh NO...Stop looking at me won't you!!!
Thank you, Julian, for documenting the choices that you had before you decided what would be the first painting (July 15).Your observations about the landscape near Sault ultimately resulted in two paintings that give two very different views of the fields of lavender. You have revealed what the painter's eye sees and then the choices he makes to create an image. I especially like the painting today in which a streak of yellow jumps out from the dominant, cool greens. That yellow motif also appears in the sunflower paintings and others you have painted this week.
