#16 Kristin, improvising the backyard

5 x 8, watercolor
(c) 2011, klink

I get tired of drawing the same view out my window all the time, so today I nestled up in a strange spot next to the house (with an incense stick in my hand to keep the bugs away). I got to see a different view of the mountains from there and that inspired me to sort of re-invent the landscape for my own purposes. I plaid with space and moved all the trees, and it was very fun. I've also been feeling inspired by Lorrie's soft yellows and purples. It was a sunny day so nice to think about color more than I normally do.

I like the loose quality, and the colors are great!

...it must be wonderful to have a mountain view from anywhere in your yard! I like the softness and muted colors...beautiful.

Love this! Nice job on the sky area. Does the incense work? You guys have some pretty fierce mosquitos!
