Forsythia


This is one of our forsythia bushes, looking out across the street. They are covered in blossoms - a shock of brilliant yellow. It felt good to be painting outdoors today!

This is great, Kim. Forsythia is one of my favorites. I just returned home from our North Carolina summer house which was studded with dogwood and forsythia.

You captured the yellow perfectly!

Beautiful and bright. The subtle colors makes it feel like early morning to me. Yes, time for more coffee!

I love forsythia bushes, bright yellow and full of sun. And you just captured it. Great job with the house in the background.

BEautiful, Kim. I'm a huge fan of forsythia paintings, because I know how hard they are, PLUS I love the cheerful yellow flowers!
