Butterflies Paradise Tonalist Nature Painting

About this Painting: Painted en plein air, last August, this richly textured painting combines an earthy tonalist palette of colors with the quick, broken brushwork of an impressionist painting. This particular spot is festooned with wildflowers that are a delight to butterflies and the place was loaded with them while I was painting this.

All these photos were taken in the general area where Butterflies Paradise was painted. So you can see why they love it! And perhaps you can see how all that incredible detail and texture in the wildflowers is translatd to small dots, daubs and dashes of paint creating an impression of flowers growing with wild abandon.

This weeks Friday Follower spotlight is shining on: Wildlife and Landscape artist Brenda Thour.
Brenda writes: To take a blank canvas and create a work of art depicting God's beautiful handiwork is amazingly rewarding. Since I started painting, I have more of an appreciation of the beauty all around us. My passion is in painting wildlife and landscapes. I now look at nature differently, I view places and subjects as a possible composition. I notice the uniqueness of simple things, such as a fence post, or a tree stump. I give God all the glory for all he has done in my life.
On Brenda's blog she is currently sharing a lighthouse trip she and her husband took. There are many beautiful photos of lighthouses and some beautiful paintings Brenda has created from her reference photos.
I encourage you to go and share in Brenda's journey by visiting her blog, Enjoy!
