Here is the completed second painting for the Mississippi Alley series.
I had a hell of a time with the green and ended up throwing out a quarter cup of paint.
You may notice that I highlighted some of the leaf edges. I did this because it need to pop a little more. I don't usually like to do that, but I think that it helps this painting a lot.
This is a 36" x36" painting.
It will be interesting to see how the subject matter goes over with people.
This is really just a weed, but I like the complementary colors and think there is a kind of determined beauty here.
