Meadow Croft plein air 2


5x7 oil sketch.

This was started the same day at the Estate. My focus was on the study of greens. My good friend Vic a fine artist and constant inspiration. He is presently studying greens. I used the Keven McPherson method of mixing blues and yellows. Also black and yellow make a great green. If you get a chance check out Vic's blog.

  2. I love them all Joan. especially the third one down, There gorgeous, well done. you have been busy havn`t you? Still enjoying your new palette? I`ve decided to keep using my small pochade box, the 6x8 one. It`s so easy to carry around. I would like to take a tripod with me so that I can stand up and have much more controle. All the best Joan.

  5. Hi Joan!.... Love the "scuffiness" in your application of paint in selected areas of paint... creates a nice loose feel!

    T'is the season for greens! Great time to experiment and try out new ideas out... like "You" are!

    A nice painterly piec!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  7. Hi Bruce,

    Thank you. Yes I love learning and experimenting. I did use one of your tips. Yesterday I started a painting, first the toned canvas, the layout, the tonal values, and then the actual color. It was fascinating to do, I will post it tomorrow. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

    All the best to you.

    Joan
