I'm still working on the tractors. Happy so far, and have figured out the background. On the way down to LR, there is a big piece of equipment that is on the edge of a rice field, right up against a hill covered in trees. It is there most of the year. In fact, my youngest uses that piece of equipment as a landmark to know how close we are to our destination. So I decided to use that idea to finish this painting. On the second try (the granulating paper from hell) I put the tractors on top of a small knoll, but the big sky just didn't say enough about my home. They could have been anywhere...not really what I wanted to convey. Now it speaks of home. So now I have to decide the order of things, which I could do several ways. Not quite sure which way to go yet.
It is a beautiful day here, with plenty of sunshine for a change. Not really warm, but the light is great. Good day to take photos or paint. Painting it is!
