This is the typical California spring scenery with rolling hills and yellow mustard field -- after the rain, of course :) Although this kind of scenery has been captured by many artists and photographers, I still don't mind painting it as this is my memory of spring 2012.
I was experiencing the ways of handling edges and brush strokes to create the space. The green bushes have the harder edges and bigger brush strokes as they are closer to the viewers compare to the distant mountain and hill. This is a good practice and I will try to use it to my future painting.
I tried to capture the light effect in this painting - the bright bright sun shined on the horse and dry field. Also I tried to model the horse and the trailer but not over do it. I think it turned out fine :)
