Lollipop Trees + Mustard Field Farm: Day 5/365 iPad Painting, originally uploaded by cproppe.Monday, March 12, 2012
Day 5 into the iPad painting project, I sketched this scene from memory... Our drive to Donner Summit from Marin takes us out route 37 towards Black Point and Sears Point Raceway. This farm on the right side of 37 was ablaze with yellow mustard fields and the trees on the hill in the distance looked like perfect circular lollipops. The rolling hills and clouds created so many layers, I was thinking "The world is your onion".... It was a silly little painting, as this landscape is shockingly beautiful, and my response is almost childlike. Brushes and painting with your finger tend to make things come out a bit simplified. I wonder if a stylus would help any...?
