|Purple Aster Preliminary under-painting|
One of the things I LOVE to do in the fall is WALK.
The colours and the massive change in the natural world is always such a pleasure to behold.
This year, while strolling back country, I came across this massive patch of 'purple aster'.
Most people call them 'weeds', but I think the add immensely to the changing landscape ...
The image above is the 'first pass', in acrylic,
with the INTENT to 'zap' it a la MLH as seen below.
What do you think? Yes/No? Size is about 38" square.

I'm going to take another pass at milkweeds on the lakefront soon.
Will post when done.
Constructive comments always welcome .. :)
