Late spring and summer is the season when Seattle doesn't rain as much. That's the time when golfers come out and start swinging under the sun!
I am not good at golf, but I always enjoy the beautiful golf courses. I have no idea how do they keep hundreds of acres of grass perfectly green and flat (I can't even keep my few square feet backyard lawn look nice). But I can understand why so many people enjoy this sport! To be able to get away from the noise and commotion to places like these is such a luxury experience.
Most golf paintings I saw were done in oil and in photo-realism. But I personally like to leave that to a good high mega pixel camera. I want the painting to "feel" real and let you experience the emotion of being there. The fresh air, the cool breeze, the crisp sound of the club hitting the golf ball!
