Cherry blossom is a difficult subject to paint. Just like the blossom, the lightest of the light layers are required. I tried my best and liked the result from Study 2 and Study 3 the most.

Yesterday I decided to paint this vista which shows a large foreground area. I decided to keep a focus on the horizon and that worked. Our eyes move to the water ultimately even though there are reds and even though the sky and water are both blue.
I just realized today while painting that the shadows can be painted warm and cooler too. I had always thought they were painted with cooler colors. But noticing this nuance when I changed the top layer with warm brown around the focus area in this study and I was pleased!
