Tiny Morning Blossoms

I have been practicing foreground/backgrounds on these chaotic clumps of wildflowers and tiny blossoms. While working on the Magnolias, helped along by the lovely scent, I realized how simple it can be to paint sometimes in contrast to others. Did I need more practice, or did I need to get in a proper mood? I decided that practicing something difficult would help me do some parts of the painting more intuitively and allow me to observe and relate the main interest more fluently.

Recently, this comment from Andrew Nixon’s photo blog got me thinking, so that is in my mind percolating too.

“In many ways I’ve been trying too hard. Forcing something that wasn’t working, where as this photograph was taken without thought and was essentially intuitive.”

So, check out Andrew Nixon’s Photo Blog for inspiring ideas and great images to float around your brain.
