This is hanging in the conservatory. The whole garden is beautiful at night with all the Christmas light displays.
I’m working on a nocturn oil painting of a view of Ginko trees with Japanese lanterns. There’s blue and green lights on the ground around them. It’s a challenge painting in the dark, mixing the colors as its getting darker. But there is some light from the spotlights on the trees . I’ve never tried to paint a nocturn before, so I don’t know if it will work out. As an artist its important to challenge myself. I don’t know if the other people think I’m crazy to paint outsde in the cold at night. If it comes out I’ll post it on the blog in a week or two. If not, oh well.
