March and April are usually write-offs for me as far as plein air work. I find the florescent greens of new growth combined with the browns of winter to be really unpicturesque. My own attempts at blossoms are usually miserable failures so I avoid them. I also have a lot of studio work to catch up on, mostly enlarging sketches of Italian subjects from last year to meet gallery commitments.
That said, I did get out a few times and here are the results.
I’m off to Italy next week so this will probably be it for my Dutch period. It’s too bad as the colors are just getting interesting again.
