Crabtree Forest Preserve

Hello Friends:

Yesterday's plein aire outing resulted in a painting covered with nothing but dark green paint, since my canvas had bright sunlight beating down on it as I painted. At the time, I couldn't understand why my painting kept getting darker and darker and greener and greener! Now I realize that I was trying to fight with all that bright sunlight. When I got it home, I put away the green paint and added nothing but yellow, pink, and blue. I also tried to lighten it up a bit, and this is the result. I'm liking this painting a bit better now!
