the one that got away
This painting was not a lot of fun. Happy with the outcome but not the process. I painted it on an 8 x 10 amperstand panel that I primed black. I then proceed to paint the painting with no black left showing through for interest. Only reason I would undercoat black. The panel was so slick that when I would go back to refine something I would pick up paint instead of adding it. Not enough paint loaded on my brush!! Ya da ya da ya da.....
I am very excited to be leaving for Florida tomorrow for a plein air workshop with Anne Blair Brown. We will be painting coastal light. Wish it was going to be warmer but that is unusual in February. As I have said before I am a newby to plein air. May or may not post paintings next week. Hopefully I will do better than I did at Tim Horns. NO postings from that . Still learned a ton.
Really want to try and find time to do Carol Marine's challenge on Daily Paintworks. May try to squeeze in an hour today.
Hope everyone has a great week!sold
