Hi Everyone, I haven't posted in a while, as my husband had knee replacement surgery and I have been busy helping him with recovery. He is coming along nicely, now, so I will have a bit more time.
I took my watercolor painting class to beautiful Heathcote Garden in Ft. Pierce, Florida in April. It was a gorgeous day and the flowers there were beginning to put on a show, plus the garden is full of lovely tropical plants that always catch the eye.
I love the way the trees are back-lite in the above photo. Beautiful shadows on the palm leaves. As I looked for just the right thing to paint myself, while my students painted, I noticed these palm fronds.
I also liked this scene with the beautiful Wisteria and pond. One of the students is standing on the little bridge admiring it, too.
But I kept coming back to this scene and finally ended up with the plein aire painting below.
