Rose of Sharon


This an 8x10 acrylic on canvas panel. In Kevin Macpherson book on plein air he suggest doing plein air studies in 1hr. Believe it or not, I got into trouble the last 10 minutes. All in all it's wonderful painting that fast, the mind can't interfere , well almost. Oh, he also suggest just using primary colors.

  2. I really like this. I need to work on florals more. I have Kevin's book. I think it is a great idea to use 3 colors. Like the floral below and your studies very much. I have not been over here for a while. Nice work.
