Thank you all for those encouraging comments! I'm not especially comfortable with acrylics, but they are fast. In fact, at the end they were drying on the way from brush to panel, and they were mostly Golden Opens plus retarder. Dunno how you painters who live in perennially hot climates do it!

Thanks Derek (and Arnie and John ). I've discovered that green gold plus white make a sunny grass color that I like.

Thanks, Matthew! This is lupine season. The blues in the photo are not very accurate though.
Thank you, Michael. The soil here is very red and I like to use it in an underpainting.
Donna and Gary, thanks so much. It was good to get outside to paint.
Heather and oldmnartist, thanks for those very kind words!
