Notes From the Field
This is that magical time of the year in North Florida, that so few appreciate. Most painters love spring and summer with all the flower blooms and emerald green fields. For me, Fall and winter are the magic. As I step outside I see subtle shades of gray, both cool and warm, many variations of brown, gold and purple in the landscape. Here and there are startling fields of winter rye grass, sharply green against the grays and rusts around them.This is north Florida at it's best, with the bite of winter chill.

Study the trees of the South and how to paint them, including canopies, trunks, mechanics of trees, light and shade, and color of trees.
