The road to the Iwaki Flower Center


View from the easel of Taira town.

This is my fourth landscape within the last month.  The view is off of the road going to the Iwaki Flower Center.  I did something different this time, that being, I took a pair of +3.0 reading glasses and painted it wearing those.  This blurred my vision of course but it helped me to simplify shapes and colors and I was happy with this new technique.  That, combined with the umbrella is giving me much brighter, not so overly dark colors.
