So, at last, we finally ventured to Listers Huvud, our entire family of three kids, my husband and I carrying a little girl each in baby carriers, through the forest, downhill, and then aaaall the way back again. This wonderful setting sun greeted us on our way back uphill. I took more than 800 photos, hehe…
It became obvoius to me that my notorious painting in the last few years has really made an impact on the way I use my camera. I’m very much aware of lighting and composition, in a way that I was never before. So I don’t have to do much cropping before painting from these wonderful shots from our large, lokal beech forest. It was so wonderful (in this month of may) I felt like I was walking in a rainforest. So many sounds of birds, creaking trees and fresh spring leaves in the wind. Simply amazing.
More of these paintings are coming… for sure.
