Things are starting to let loose and go airborne. I love fall : )
I love the wildness of the prairie and the chance to go a little more abstract in these paintings : )

There were so many tall yellow daisy like flowers that day. Most were over my head! I used the edge of the palette knife to put in these stems. At first I was careful, but in the end it all came out a bit abstract expressionist : )
Based on a photo of a single tree (not sure what kind) in the middle of the prairie (see photo below). The sky is from my imagination. The same palette as yesterday was used. We had a glorious afternoon hiking in this preserve last weekend : )
palette: cadmium yellow light, quinacridone magenta, cadmium red vermillion, ultramarine blue, sevres blue and white. Initial warm tone of vermillion plus some sevres blue (applied as a wash). This one was not quick like yesterday’s. I had to scrape a lot off at one point because I was painting too many details.
