If baseball players can train in the spring…
Cold, rain, March Winds, April Showers, whatever…I am going to blow through my greengrocer’s stock of flowers and paint them all until the weather becomes a lot less annoying. Daffodils, maybe next, although I’m pining to plant a few flats of pansies in my garden and may have them around to work with too. I realized with this painting how little use of reds were needed in my wintry snow paintings. I worked with a new tube of quinacridone red (M. Graham) and enjoyed the blue/red punch of the color along with its transparency. Cad red is often too opaque for my liking, but using both in this painting was a good learning experience.
