Brooklyn Backyard End of May

En Plein Air in the garden

Chased raindrops all afternoon as en plein air became rain air during this painting of pink perennial geraniums and white aquilegia columbine. Forced to work in starts and stops, I love how the white paper became crucial to the composition, especially when the sunlight all changed and I had to work only with shapes. Will do more like this, I think.

By next week the daylilies and roses will be in bloom, it is June afterall.

  1. Nice use of negative space and shape! Really like the color choices in this painting.
