|At first the rhododendron was in the middle ground and there was a tree to the right. |
As I painted I saw the house across the street.
I decided to paint larger rhododendrons in the foreground covering the tree at right.
|When the painting , "Rhododendron and Tree" became too rough I used some of the same colors on practice watercolor paper. Feeling the return of confidence I made bold strokes over much of the surface. ending up with the painting above.|
|almost completed "Rhododendron and Tree"|
