Hey Friends, The majority of this day has been beautiful here in SW Va. So after a few little chores, I threw my stuff on the golf cart and headed down Gum Springs.
This is another neighbors quaint little homestead. Above I have finished the first of the shed.
Between this photo and the second one, I made a mess. One leg on the easel gave way when I was moving it to paint that gorgeous tree. The palette flipped very conveniently on top of the canvas panel that I had the tree drawn on. Of course it was a mess but much better than grass and dirt in the paint. I just got the biggest brush I had and using the turps blended all the different colors across the drawing.
So you can see I recovered but I'll tell ya, this plein-aire job is almost more than I can take. If I didn't want to be outside so much, I'd say "Forget It". And I don't seem to be getting any better at it. That's the part that's really frustrating. I have been told more than once I'm to impatient, that's the reason I haven't given up yet. What I really need is a class/workshop from someone that's good at this. My color choices suck, especially in the fall. Enough whining.
