The wind blew again today, and the cherry trees lost more of their blossoms, but they still look great. It was also downright hot -- 85 degrees or so. So it was a good day to get outside and paint once more.
I struggled with this one more than the past few. I drew a few sketches and settled on a plan, but once I started painting, I started rethinking the composition -- adding and removing background elements, fussing with shadow placement, etc. I think I managed to recover, and I hope the picture doesn't reflect my early indecisiveness. In any case, the blossoms look pretty, and that's what counts!
