MY COMMENTS:
This May I started pushing paint around again. I have not painted in 25 years and lost all skills at drawing and color mixing.
This is a painting from the third day of a plein aire workshop. The scanner clipped the top of the trees. I know the background should be a bit cooler and less detailed.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I am trying for a "loose" style. Comments?

I think the problem here is color, there is not enough contrast so I can't find the "lines" of the objects well enough. The composition seems OK though.

Firebird and JerryW,
Thanks for your comments. I do appreciate them. It is frustrating rre-starting after so long, but painting means so much more than it did back then. Now I have something to say.
