Lavender Field

I spent a little while doing watercolor, to broaden my knowledge, although oil is my real love. This was one of my efforts. Some things in nature are so amazing that they don't look real when painted, and this subject is one of them. I also gaze at my photos of the colorful pools at Yellowstone and wonder if there is any point in attempting that subject. They look like something from another World. God's colors are much more brilliant than anything Winsor & Newton can come up with.
