I love to visit the Farmer's Market when it first opens; especially on those summer mornings when the sun is still low, but you can feel the warmth of the day coming on quickly. Everything the summer sun touches warms up instantly.

This painting was such an interesting challenge! I loved deliberately choosing the warm and cool areas of the painting. It was also such an interesting puzzle to simplify this complicated scene into tonal areas of similar values.

My favorite part of this composition is the triangles. It's so fun how the triangles of the paper around the flowers are similar to the tops of the canopies.
