"Wild Sweetpeas" oil 11 x 14 plein air

Beautiful! I would love to learn how to paint with such simplicity and confidence. Thanks for sharing Ron.

Thanks Caron - try longish brush strokes and very little blending. Besides technique, also strive for restrained elegance, avoiding anything too ostentatious. Simple composition helps too.
