Coggeshall Farm

Found this tranquil scene late afternoon earlier in the week. The light on the land across the pond attracted me first, then the Bay beyond. I kept the foreground very abstract, going over what I felt to be "too careful" brushstrokes with the palette knife in order to make it less fussy. I reminded myself that showing each blade of grass is not what I'm most interested in. Leave it to those who do it so well, better than I ever could!

  2. Lovely and tranquil, Anne. Can feel the background, midground, foreground very nicely.
