Little Bright Spots

These zinnias have popped up everywhere and are gracing my five acres with their sunshiny presence. I was so excited that they hung around until I finally had time and lovely weather to sit right there in front of them and paint under the big blue gum.

I feel that painting direct from life produces quite a different effect as I cannot agonize over any particular detail the way I can when working from a photograph. Just get on with it and let it be what it will. I find it rather fun.
