071 - Light Summer, Oils on Canvas

"Light Summer", 18 X 36", Oils on Canvas, by Belinda Lindhardt

I know i already posted this one last week or so. But i wanted to get a better photo of it and so i have. To go along with it also have included a detail shot of the grasses for Rose :) I used ultramarine blue in amongst the grasses to get the shadows and the darker areas happening. In RL the colours on it are quite subtle its really nice. I really like this one :)

This week, i am gettting a few paintings prepared for a local exhibition, so as i varnish and apply hooks, get name tags prepared etc, it always amazes me how much time these little details take :) But i also enjoy the process as it gives me time to reflect on what others will take from my work and to think about what to do in the future. It's an important part of the process. Makes me feel like a real artist.
This piece, along with a couple of others will be exhibited and for sale in the exhibition run by the Central Coast Art Society at Gosford. Details to come.
