Art is an innate creative aptitude to see beyond the normal realm and works from scratch, while crafts works with materials or instructions that are pre-made
Probably my last summer field pic. In the beginning, the grass on the hills was not the ugly brown of last years. Maybe more water this year had to do with it! It became a dreamy white golden grain color. (good fences)

Found this door in an alley with some artsy shops. The same
decorative design here as on the door screen above:)

Looks like Bougainvillea, but maybe not because these bloom in a flower pot.
Fri Hunt: Starts with L: Last summer pic (1)
Weeks fave: sunset
While making a plein air with oil from the trees in the front, I kept seeing these rocks slightly to the left in the background. They were such a stark and solid feature, demanding the roaring river to go around, because they were not going to move!.
So, before I packed up, I made an outline (without the background here) on my cold pressed Arches watercolor paper.
The challenge I had to deal with, is that the sun obliterated the true shape of objects. Also, on the left front, was shade, but not on the right of this scene. Didn’t want to go realistic, but still it effected on how to go about the values of the rocks and the water! (if it sounds complicated, these notes are more for me than for you:))

Here the end result, Am satisfied how I dealt with the sun and shade. I left off the tree trunk on the left – as I would for a blog photo – but wanted to show that with the painting I made some adjustment. My quote below for ABC Wed. -K
painting from what you KNOW, instead of painting from what you see
